Windback Wednesday | Josh Hoffman

Josh Hoffman spent the 2019 season with both the Parramatta Eels in the NRL and Wentworthville Magpies in the Canterbury Cup NSW and it's safe to say no matter what jersey he put on, he gave 110% and more. 

Hoffman captained the Magpies to the Grand Final after they finished eighth on the competition ladder, and he well and truly lead with his actions after finishing the campaign with seven tries, five line-breaks and 70 tackle-breaks in just 13 appearances. 

His experienced proved invaluable in the finals series, alongside veteran and retiree Tim Hannah, as the Magpies recorded three emphatic victories en route to the decider, although their admirable efforts were to no avail with a 20-15 extra-time defeat to the Newtown Jets. 

The 32-year-old has enjoyed a wonderful Rugby League career since his first-grade debut with the Broncos in 2008, with 189 NRL matches and three Tests for New Zealand to his name.

He joined the Gold Coast Titans in 2015, the same year he represented the Indigenous All Stars, before joining the Eels in 2017.

Although he managed just 31 games for Parramatta in the process, he left no stone unturned in every fixture he played, departing the club with 15 tries and a host of impressive individual performances.
