Biography:

Signing formalities were completed for the Cronulla-Sutherland rookie as long ago as November 2021 before he linked up with the One New Zealand Warriors on a two-year contract.
His NRL debut was against his former club Manly Warringah in round 2021 when he came into the Cronulla squad after Shaun Johnson was ruled out for the last six rounds of the regular season.
Metcalf’s second appearance was against the One New Zealand Warriors, when he was used off the interchange for only the last three minutes of a contest his side lost 16-18.
In his fourth game, he was a standout scoring two tries, creating another and making 124 metres in Cronulla’s 50-20 win over the Wests Tigers.
After coming through the age grades with the Sharks, Metcalf was with Manly Warringah in 2018, 2019 and 2020 before returning to Cronulla this year.
An ACL knee injury ruined his 2019 season before he returned to represent Manly at the NRL Nines in Perth only to then be reduced to spending the Covid-impacted 2020 campaign in a training-only role.
Throughout his career Metcalf has stood out as a strike weapon. Able to play at fullback as well as in the halves, he represented New South Wales at both under-16 and under-18 level during an outstanding junior career which included him scoring 19 tries and kicking 61 goals in just 21 games for Cronulla’s SG Ball Cup under-18 side in 2016 and 2017. In all games at all levels from under-16s up he has a total of 63 tries in 89 matches.
Metcalf was a standout for the One New Zealand Warriors in their 48-12 trial win over Wests Tigers on February 9 but a hamstring injury the following week was set to delay his start to the season proper.
