The son of former Claremont and North Melbourne player Mark Brayshaw and the brother of Melbourne's Angus, Hamish was West Coast's sixth selection in the 2017 draft.

West Coast career[edit | edit source]

After going undrafted in 2016, Hamish spent 2017 as an overage player in the TAC Cup system alongside younger brother Andrew as well as filling in with VFL side Sandringham Zebras. The hardworking midfielder was picked by the Eagles late in the draft, long after Andrew was taken by Fremantle with pick 2.

Unfortunately, Brayshaw required knee surgery during the pre-season that kept him out of action for the first half of 2018.[1] He resumed mid-season, playing with East Perth's reserves before breaking into the senior side and turning in some eye-catching performances late in the year, including a 41-possession game against East Fremantle.

Brayshaw battled injuries in the first half of 2019, including a bout of 'turf toe', but had a strong finish to the year and led the Eagles' new standalone reserves side in disposals and tackles. Despite that, he was delisted ahead of the November draft, with the club promising to redraft him and fellow midfielder Brendon Ah Chee if the pair were still available.
