Biography

An exciting centre, 23-year-old Craig joins Jack Aldous and Brett Waller in moving up the A19 for the new season and arrives on Tyneside following a strong 2016 season.

Craig has made a total of 40 appearances across League 1, the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup and the League 1 Cup since making his professional debut in 2012, with his quick and elusive style of play coupling with a strong skill set.

He has an impressive strike rate in League 1, with 17 tries in his career to date and also added kicking to his repertoire in 2016 with 18 goals.

While primarily operating in the midfield, Craig has proven equally capable on the wings and at halfback during his time with the Knights and will provide Thunder’s coaches with valuable versatility during the season.
