Tyrel Lomax

16th Mar 1996 1.92m/127kg Tighthead Prop

The son of Canberra Raiders legend, Johnny Lomax in the National Rugby League, Tyrel has chosen Rugby as his path into professional sport.

Tyrel returns to the Australia U20s after a successful stint in 2015, but returns a physically fitter and stronger player.

He was a member of the 2015/16 Australian U20 team and was named the Australian U20 player of the year in 2016.

In July 2016, the Rebels announced to have signed the hulking Australian U20s tighthead prop from the Brumbies.

After impressing for Melbourne Rising in the 2016 NRC, Lomax made his debut for the Rebels in 2017 and went on to play in 13 of the Rebels 15 Super Rugby matches.

In September he signed with the Highlanders and Tasman Makos for the 2019 season.

Lomax will complete his contract with the Rebels, unless he is granted an early release, then link up with Tasman and the Highlanders in 2019.

Lomax was granted an early release and rejoined Tasman for the 2017 Mitre 10 Cup where he was one of the sides top performers and earned a call up to the Maori All Blacks squad for their end of year tour.

In October 2018 he earned an All Black call up for the Japan leg of the November Series

In June 2019, he signed a four-year deal with the Hurricanes through until at least 2023.
