Scott Barker BSc(Sp&ExSc) 2006
Head of Performance Analysis, Brisbane Broncos
Scott was in the first intake of sport and exercise science students at USC in 1999. Around the same time, he wrote a letter to Brisbane Broncos coach Wayne Bennett offering his services at training and ended up volunteering there for two years, doing everything from holding up the tackle bags to filling water bottles. In 2001, Wayne created a full-time paid position for Scott as a Video Analyst when such roles didn’t exist. "Wayne was definitely ahead of his time", says Scott. "It's only in the last 5 years or so that other professional rugby league clubs have employed full-time performance analysts". During his career, Scott has also worked for QLD State of Origin, Australian Rugby League, Newcastle Knights, Illawarra Dragons, English and French National Rugby League teams. He has led the way with technological advances in his field.
