Tony Clubb has carved out a reputation for being a tough and uncompromising forward, no more so emphasised than in 2017 when he returned to play against Widnes in the Super League, 58 days after having one of his kidney’s removed.
- Having started out at centre, Kent-born Clubb made his Super League debut in 2006 for London Broncos (formally known as Harlequins RL) and was made club captain in 2013.
- He played over 150 games for the London club, scoring 47 tries before joining Wigan ahead of the 2014 season.
- Scored four tries for England, whilst at centre in the Four Nations win over Papua New Guinea in 2010.
- Played in the 2017 World Cup Challenge win vs Cronulla Sharks.
- Came off the bench in the 2018 Grand Final win against Warrington Wolves, after making 32 appearances throughout the campaign.
- Made 25 appearances under Adrian Lam in 2019, scoring three tries – one of which came 40 metres from the whitewash as Clubb picked up a loose ball and famously ran towards the corner in front of the Cherry and White away fans to seal victory for the Warriors.
- Following injury disruption in the early stages of the 2020 season, Clubb regained fitness and a spot in the matchday squad for the business end to the season. Making ten appearances in total, Clubb’s experience helped Wigan to the League Leaders’ Shield victory.
