Brayden Wiliame (born 17 December 1992) is an Australian-born Fijian professional rugby league footballer who currently plays for the French Catalans Dragons in the English Super League. He plays at centre and wing and can also play fullback. He previously played for the Parramatta Eels and Manly Sea Eagles in the NRL.
Born in Gosford, New South Wales, Wiliame is of Fijian descent and played his junior football for the Woy Woy Roosters, Umina Bunnies and Central Coast Harold Matthews Cup and S. G. Ball Cup squads, before signing a 3-year contract with the Melbourne Storm.
In 2013, Wiliame joined the Parramatta Eels.
At the end of 2013, Wiliame was released by the Eels and joined the Newcastle Knights for the 2014 season.
On 1 October 2014, Wiliame signed a 2-year contract with the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles starting in 2015. He made his debut for Manly in Round 2 of the 2015 NRL season against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs.
After playing on the wing in the opening two rounds of the 2016 NRL season, Wiliame was dropped to Manly's New South Wales Cup team to allow for the return from injury of fullback Brett Stewart. With Manly losing both games to the Bulldogs and Wests Tigers respectively, Wiliame remained winless in all first grade games and talk spread among Manly fans and the media that he was cursed. He was recalled to the side for the Sea Eagles' Anzac Day match against the Knights in Newcastle following a broken collar bone suffered by winger Jorge Taufua a week earlier against Parramatta. Wiliame crossed for his first NRL try of the season and broke his NRL duck as Manly ran out 26-10 winners over the bottom placed Knights.
After 23 first grade games with Manly, Wiliame was granted a release from his contract with the club on 9 November 2016 in order to take up a two year deal with the Catalans Dragons in the Super League.
