Wolfpack skipper Josh McCrone is in his second season in Canada after joining the club from St George Illawarra Dragons in the NRL in 2018.
McCrone is one of the more experienced figures in Toronto’s ranks, with over 150 appearances in the top flight in Australia to his name after originally debuting for Canberra in 2009.
Noted for his consistency and efficiency as both a half back or dummy half, McCrone’s leadership qualities at both the Dragons and Raiders saw him brought to Toronto to spearhead a professional and winning culture, which resulted in him being made captain soon after his arrival.
The 31 year old is as durable as they come and was virtually an ever present for the Pack in his first season, playing a vital role in leading them to the League Leaders’ Shield in the Betfred Championship.
McCrone has terrific vision and a deft kicking game, combined with a real toughness in defence, making him a strong all-round performer week in week out for the Wolfpack.
He’ll no doubt be looking to help once again lead the squad, which is another year more experienced, to go one better than 2018 by securing Toronto’s promotion to Super League.
