Biography:

The 27-year-old Lautoka-born Marcelo joined the club for the 2021 season, becoming the sixth acquisition for the campaign following the earlier signings of Ben Murdoch-Masila (Warrington), Euan Aitken (St George Illawarra), Kane Evans (Parramatta), Addin Fonua-Blake (Manly Warringah) and Sean O’Sullivan (Brisbane). Along with Fonua-Blake he is the only one of the sextet still with the One New Zealand Warriors in 2023.
He was named the Bulldogs’ 2017 rookie of the year after scoring 12 tries in 19 games, Montoya went on to make 54 first-grade appearances. He was used on the wing in 2017 and 2018 but has started in the centres in all but four of his last 21 appearances.
Of Chilean heritage on his father’s side, he began his career against his new club in the first and only NRL match played at Dunedin’s Forsyth Barr Stadium in 2017, marking it with a try in the Bulldogs’ 24-12 victory over the One New Zealand Warriors.
He had a prolific NYC under-20 career scoring 36 tries in 46 matches from 2014 to 2016.
After making his international debut in 2016, Montoya was in the Fiji side which stunned the Kiwis 4-2 in Wellington in the quarter-finals of the 2017 Rugby League World Cup.
In his debut season with the One New Zealand Warriors he won the clubman of the year award.
