Background[edit]

Clubb while playing for Harlequins in 2008

Rugby League[edit] Tony Clubb
Tony Clubb
began playing Rugby League for Greenwich Admirals where he played alongside the likes of Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook, Dave Williams and Mike Worrincy who also joined the London Broncos
London Broncos
Academy and went on to play in the first team. His first team début for what was intially named Harlequins RL came in a home fixture against the Bradford Bulls
Bradford Bulls
on 18 February 2006. Clubb was also selected to play for the Harlequins rugby union side in the Middlesex Sevens at Twickenham Stadium.[5] He was, however, unable to play as he was called back for Harlequins RL to replace the unavailable Paul Sykes in the match against Wigan Warriors. He was regarded as an outside back in London
London
and played mainly as a Centre and occasionally as a winger and represented his country in this position between 2008 and 2010. After this, he became heavier and his agility decreased and he started to play as an interchange forward but was not seen as international standard, so his international career was unknowingly ended by his change of positions. He played more than 150 games for Harlequins RL and London Broncos
London Broncos
in all competitions, eventually becoming the Captain, though by that time he was already seeking to leave the club. In 2013, the team now known as London Broncos
London Broncos
had serious financial problems and the Wigan Warriors[6] took full advantage of the situation. They approached both the former England
England
international Clubb despite him still having a contract, plus signed the out-of-contract England
England
Knights half-back Dan Sarginson. London Broncos
London Broncos
received a nominal fee for two of the best three club trained players they had ever produced and the next season was their last in Super League.[6] 2014[edit] Clubb was a utility player perceived by some Wigan supporters as an outside back due to his international appearances but by the manager as a squad man who could play as a forward. He was on the bench 14 times, made 9 starts and was omitted from the squad for the other games. By the end of end of the season he was mainly used as an interchange prop. He also scored seven tries including a brace against his former side London
London
Broncos. He helped Wigan to the Super League Grand Final but was a losing finalist as Wigan lost against St Helens in a game infamous for Ben Flower
Ben Flower
knocking Lance Hohaia unconscious then continuing to attack him leading to a red card in the 3rd minute of the match. Ironically his long term friend Louis McCarthy-Scarsbrook was on the winning side. 2015[edit] Clubb was moved permanently to the front row at the start of the new Super League
Super League
season after expressing his desire to play at prop.[7] Clubb made 26 appearances scoring tries against Wakefield Trinity and Warrington Wolves. In late May he signed a new deal just 18 months into his original 4 year contract due to his impressive performances and also the fact that his original deal did not really reflect his ability.[8] Clubb made his second appearance at Old Trafford in the Super League
Super League
Grand Final and again did not win the Grand Final, losing out to Leeds Rhinos 22-20. 2016[edit] Clubb started the season impressively making 15 appearances and scoring one try before an illegal crusher tackle against Hull FC saw him requiring surgery. Due to the crusher tackle he did not play for another nine months meaning he was not part of the squad that won the 2016 Super League
Super League
Grand Final against Warrington, thus he has still not been on the winning side at Old Trafford depite Wigan's three visits in three years. 2017[edit] After nine months out he made his comeback against Salford Red Devils in Round 1 of Super League. He played an important role against Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks helping Wigan to win the World Club Challenge for a record breaking fourth time. His early season form was not overly impressive and after he withdrew early against Castleford Tigers it was announced that he was to have surgery to remove a kidney which had been troubling him. Incredibly just two months later he made his comeback against Widnes Vikings helping Wigan to a 28-12 victory. He played an important role in the narrow Challenge Cup final loss, his controversially disallowed try the reason Hull FC claimed the trophy. Hull coach Lee Radford said after the game "I honestly thought that was a try for Tony Clubb".[9] After the ball was stolen from Clubb he grounded the ball however the video referee deemed he had lost control of the ball therefore had knocked on. The controversy increased a week later when St Helens were awarded a similar try against Wigan in the Super League. In total Clubb played 22 times scoring one try for a feeble Wigan outfit which finished in the bottom half of the table. 2018[edit] In the 2018 season, Wigan Warriors
Wigan Warriors
released eight players including stars like McIlorum and Gelling but made only two signings. This saw many players handed a lower number than before and Clubb was handed the number 8 shirt after Wigan released Frank-Paul Nu'uausala. This was the first time since his days at London Broncos
London Broncos
that Clubb was perceived as being in the starting line-up.[10] Career Statistics[edit]
