Arguably Super League’s quickest hooker off the mark in attack and the most hardworking in defence, Daryl’s electric bursts from dummy half and 110 per cent effort is a joy to watch. He was signed from his home town club, Castleford Tigers, for a fee of £185,000 a year ahead of him joining us in 2015. He had spent four seasons with Cas and his superb displays earned him the coveted Steve Prescott Man of Steel award in his final season with them. He was also named Super League’s Young Player of the Year. Daryl played in the 2014 Challenge Cup Final with Cas and three more finals with Wire and he has now made more than 170 appearances in primrose and blue, scoring more than 30 tries including one at Wembley in the 2019 final and creating so many more. Daryl was a member of the revived Great Britain side in 2019, scoring a try in the first test against New Zealand. He also has eight England caps.
