It was a year of milestones and chart-toppers for Josh King as he recorded his best NRL season to date.
The 27-year-old came in hot in nearly all areas of the game, notably, for the second year in a row, clocking in the Club’s most in-season appearances for 2023 (alongside forward Trent Loiero) with 26.
King went on to also lead the charge with the most decoy runs in the NRL (260), most post-contact metres for the club (982) and the second most tackles in the club (1,014), fourth most in the league, with a 93% efficiency.
Standing strong in the forward pack, the lock ended the season with three tries, 17 tackle-breaks, 2,784 run metres and averaging 10 hit-ups each game.
The Singleton Greyhounds junior’s season kept on an upward trajectory from there, going on to celebrate his 50th game in the purple jersey in the preliminary finals before taking home the Club’s 2023 Forward of the Year.
