The 24-year-old played 105 NRL games across five seasons for the Cronulla Sharks between 2014 and 2018.

Holmes was a crucial member of the Sharks’ maiden premiership-winning outfit in 2016, scoring 19 tries in 26 games.

His most recent season in the NRL before departing for the USA was arguably his best. Playing the majority of his games at fullback, Holmes scored a remarkable 22 tries in just 26 games in 2018 and led the NRL with 26 line-breaks. He also claimed the 2018 Sharks’ Player of the Year and Player’s Player awards.

In total, Holmes crossed for 66 tries in his 105 NRL appearances and also booted 51 goals from 69 attempts at a 74 per cent success rate.
