NRL Profile: Dominic Young

One of the poster boys of English rugby league, Dominic Young is plying his trade and shining in the NRL.

Taking on a new challenge with the Sydney Roosters for the 2024 campaign, we take a look at Young’s background and rugby career to date…

International Caps


International Points



Sydney Roosters are currently 9.00 to go all the way and win the grand final in the 2024 NRL campaign.

The Roosters are 5.00 to make it to the grand final, while Young is available at 10.00 in the Top Tryscorer market this season.

Background and profile

Born in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, Young came through the Huddersfield Giants academy to make his Super League debut at the tender age of 17.

It was clear from the off that Young was something special and after making his debut against St Helens in 2019, the following year saw him agree a switch to the Newcastle Knights for the 2021 season.

Young made his NRL debut against West Tigers in round three of the 2021 season and scored four tries in his six appearances for the Knights that year.

The flying winger went on to score 43 tries in 51 appearances for Newcastle, before putting pen to paper on a four-year deal with the Roosters ahead of the 2024 NRL season.

Not only a winger with tremendous pace and ability to finish, Young’s shear size at 6ft 7in and 107kgs is a nightmare to defend.

International career

Young, who almost played international rugby for Jamaica, bursted onto the scene with England at the delayed 2021 World Cup, making his debut in the 60-6 win over Samoa in the opening game of the tournament, scoring two tries.

Young bagged himself a brace in the second game of the pool stage against France and four tries in the win over Greece.

England were to be stunned by Samoa in the semi-finals of the competition as Australia went on to be crowned world champions once again.

With nine tries in his opening five games for England, it’s easy to see why Young has become the poster boy for the national side.

What to expect

Young has the ability to play an important role for the Roosters this season, as they are considered as serious contenders to challenge Penrith Panthers for the title this term.

The Roosters are 9.00 to go all the way and win the title this season and, if they are to be successful and lift the Provan-Summons Trophy, expect Young to have scored a boatload of tries to get them there.
