Biography:

The 185cm, 104kg back rower made his third first-grade campaign one to remember.

In what was a breakout year for him, the 22-year-old Josh made 14 appearances after making a belated entry into the first grade side.

With only six NRL appearances in his first two seasons, he played 14 times in 2021 as new head coach Nathan Brown showed real confidence in his ability.

Curran rewarded his coach proving a real threat with the ball, scoring four tries and also improving the defensive side of his game. He averaged 79 metres and 39 tackles a game as well as adding 23 tackle breaks and 15 off loads.

Among a series of impressive displays was his effort in the 18-16 round 21 win over the Sharks when he played the full 80 minutes, made 156 metres from 16 runs with two line break assists and a try assist, six tackles breaks and four off loads along with a game-high 42 tackles.

Josh credited his improvement to Brown giving him a reality check and also showing faith in him.

He kicked off 2022 by representing the Indigenous All-Stars for the third straight season and started the NRL campaign with a blistering display against St George Illawarra.

Curran was with Parramatta as an under-16 and under-18 player in 2015 and 2016 before joining the Roosters in 2017. He made 28 under-20 appearances for the Roosters in 2017 and 2018 and also turned out nine times for feeder club Wyong in the former Intrust Super Premiership last year.

Before joining the Vodafone Warriors in 2019, he played 11 times for the North Sydney Bears – the Roosters’ new feeder club – in the Canterbury Cup this season.
