BIOGRAPHY

The 28-year-old won the NRL Dally M award in 2012 and a Grand Final with Cronulla Sharks in 2016. Ben played 168 games, scoring 99 tries, in the NRL. He started his career at the North Devils, Mackay, in Queensland before signing with the Canterbury Bulldogs in 2007. He made his representative debut for the Indigenous All Stars in the 2011 All Stars Match his first of five appearances and moved to Brisbane on 2014, scoring eight tries in 25 games. Barba then joined Cronulla and 2016 won the Grand Final after an outstanding season.

Ben made five appearances at the conclusion of the 2017 season and showed great promise for the following campaign.

The 2018 season proved to be an absolute treat of fast, attacking rugby. At the helm of our play was Beb Barba. He was instrumental in many of our attacking play. At the end of the campaign the Saints collected the League Leaders Shield and reached the semi-final stage of the Challenge Cup and the Grand Final series. Ben was voted as the Man of Steel for 2018 which came as no surprise.

The glory, however, was tinged with disappointment as Ben cut short his stay in the U.K. to sign up with the North Queensland Cowboys in the NRL. for 2019.
