Tim Glasby (born 27 April 1989) is an Australian professional rugby league footballer who plays for the Newcastle Knights in the National Rugby League. He formerly played for the Melbourne Storm, with whom he won the 2017 NRL premiership. His position is prop.

Background

Glasby was born in Townsville, Queensland but began his rugby league career while living in Rockhampton, where he played junior rugby league for local clubs, North Rockhampton Knights and Rockhampton Brothers. He was then signed by the Penrith Panthers.

Playing career

Early years

From 2008 to 2009, Glasby played for the Penrith Panthers' NYC team.[2][3] He later joined the Central Queensland Capras in the Queensland Cup. In 2010, he won the Rookie of the Year award, while winning the Capras' Player of the Year three years in a row from 2010 to 2012. He captained the side in 2012. On 6 June 2012, he signed a 2-year contract with the Melbourne Storm starting in 2013.[4]

2013

In round 16 of the 2013 NRL season, Glasby made his NRL debut for the Storm against the Wests Tigers.[5] He went on to play one more NRL match for the Storm in his debut season.[6]

2014

On 21 July, Glasby signed a 2-year contract with the North Queensland Cowboys starting in 2015,[7] however he was granted a release from the contract in October on compassionate grounds, re-signing with the Storm on a new 2-year contract until the end of 2016.[8] He played 13 NRL matches for the Storm in 2014, as he began to establish himself in the top side.[9]

2016

In April, Glasby re-signed with the Storm on a 2-year contract until the end of 2018.[10]

2017

After losing Game I of the 2017 State of Origin series, defeated 28-4 by New South Wales, the Queensland Maroons omitted players Corey Oates, Justin O'Neill, Nate Myles, Sam Thaiday, Aidan Guerra and Jacob Lillyman all due to form, opening up a position on the interchange bench for Glasby to make his State of Origin debut in Game II.[11][12] This led to controversy after Sydney newspaper The Daily Telegraph published an article with the headline "Why did Queensland select this NRL nobody?". The article received backlash, being called "disrespectful" and in "poor taste".[13]

In October, Glasby played off the interchange bench for the Storm in their 2017 NRL Grand Final win over the North Queensland Cowboys.[14]

2018

In May, Glasby signed a 3-year contract with the Newcastle Knights starting in 2019.[15]
