An outstanding hooker, who has also been an important part of the Ireland set-up, playing in two World Cups, Bob passed the milestone of 300 career appearances in 2014, having gone through the 50-try barrier in 2013.

He has been an integral player for the Centurions set-up since he joined the Club from Halifax in 2012. Bob graduated through the ranks of Wigan St Patrick’s ARL and started his pro career at Wigan Warriors, where he represented England Academy against the Australian Schoolboys in a
historic win in 2003.

He made 22 first-team appearances for the Warriors before joining Widnes in October 2005 and Halifax three years later.

After passing a century of Leigh appearances early in 2015, Bob completed another fine season by being ever-present for Ireland in the autumn internationals.
