Biography

An industrious and no nonsense backrower who was a late bloomer in his NRL career. Ryan came through the Queensland system, playing for the Tweed Heads Seagulls in the QLD Cup. He was named in the QLD residents sides in both 2010 and 2011, which then led to him signing on with the Panthers for 2012. His patience and persistence all paid off come Round 3 of the 2012 season, whereby he made his NRL debut against the Rabbitohs. Ryan has since moved on to the Titans and has been a handy recruit for the Club over the past two seasons, only recently extending his association with the Club into 2017.
