Tom McCartney was a consistent performer for the Blues since he made his debut for the club in 2008. McCartney sacrificed himself for the squad last season and shifted to loosehead prop in the absence of Tony Woodcock, however he did transition back to hooker in 2014.

Affectionately nicknamed ‘Freak’ for his impressive strength and work ethic in the gym, his core skills of throwing, tackling and carrying were as good as anyone’s.
