With a career spanning more than 200 professional appearances, Wolfpack captain Josh McCrone is now in his third year of calling Toronto home. A consistent halfback who rarely makes an error, one of McCrone’s true talents is knowing the right moment to step up and take charge on-field.
The NRL veteran had a stellar 2019 campaign that included several crucial, match-winning efforts including a try in the Grand Final that set his side on a path to the title. Forever inked into history as the leader that took the Wolfpack into the Super League, McCrone’s attention now turns to performing in the top division.
Playing over 150 games experience in the Australian top-flight NRL with Canberra Raiders and St George Illawarra, 2020 signals a new challenge for McCrone, one that his is certain to take in his stride.
Taking his Club tally past 50 appearances, McCrone missed just one game for the Wolfpack in 2019 on his way to registering ten tries while also contributing from the kicking tee on occasion.
The determined Australian does a lot of work that often goes unheralded but is the kind of player that always stands up when it is required and this has endeared him to Wolfpack fans across his two seasons with the side. The entire team walks taller when McCrone stands beside them and his leadership will be crucial during the Wolfpack’s maiden Super League campaign.
A strong kicking game and fearless approach to defence make him a strong performer each week and one that is rarely, if ever, left out of the starting line-up. With a strong passion to play in the biggest fixtures, he will be as determined as ever to make the 2020 Season his best yet.
