Abraham played at second-row forward in Newcastle's loss. In 2008, Abraham joined the North Queensland Cowboys for a season.

In 2009, Abraham played for the Mackay Cutters in the Queensland Cup. He scored 162 points for the Cutters before leaving the club at the end of the season.[1] In 2010, Abraham returned to Newcastle to play for the Knights' NSW Cup reserve-grade team, the Central Coast Centurions.[2] In 2011, Abraham returned to his junior club Kurri Kurri and captained the team in 2011 and 2012. In September 2012, Abraham played for the Newcastle Knights NSW Cup reserve-grade team in their qualifying finals match against the North Sydney Bears after being rung by coach Rip Taylor.[3]
