Biography

Tweed Heads sensation; hard-running with a sharp fend at wing or centre, moved to Norths RU in 1907. A foundation ‘professional’ player with Norths in 1908, he missed Kangaroo Tour selection despite making his state debut in July. Broomham was chosen in the three-Test series against NZ the following year and then played in two Tests against England in 1910, winning the ‘Miller’s’ medal as best player. Touring with the 1911-12 'Australasian' Kangaroos, Broomham made his final Test appearance against England in the First Test at Newcastle. After his retirement as a player he operated a tannery in Willoughby with his father Charles and three brothers.
