Total career tries129


Josh Addo-Carr has an impressive try-scoring record throughout his career, scoring a total of 129 tries in 200 NRL appearances.

Those figures include the 27 tries he has scored in 39 appearances for the Bulldogs since joining them in 2022.

Such is the depth of talent in the NRL, Addo-Carr is not one of the hot fancies to finish the 2024 NRL season as the Top Tryscorer.

He can be backed at 34.00 to finish top of the pile, with South Sydney Rabbitohs star Alex Johnston available at 7.00.

After a number of seasons of struggle, the Bulldogs will be desperate to climb the ladder and play finals in the season ahead.

They are priced at 4.00 to make the top eight and Addo-Carr will need to be bang in form to help them get there.


Addo-Carr was born in Blacktown, New South Wales and first caught the eye when starring for the Cronulla Sharks National Youth Competition Team.

The youngster showed plenty of promise for the future when scoring 28 tries in 44 matches and Wests Tigers moved quickly to snap him up.

Addo-Carr made his NRL debut in 2016 with the Tigers and scored a try against his future employers Melbourne Storm.

The Foxx, as he is now known, scored six tries in nine appearances in his one and only season for the Tigers before making the switch to the Storm.

It was during his time with the Storm that Addo-Carr really made a name for himself, scoring 96 tries in 152 appearances for the club.

Addo-Carr won three minor premierships, two grand finals and a world club challenge during his four-year spell with Melbourne Storm.

Then in 2022, Addo-Carr took the surprise decision to leave the Storm for Canterbury Bulldogs, who were struggling at the wrong end of the NRL ladder.

Addo-Carr is one of several high-profile recruits to arrive at the Bulldogs in the hope of delivering a premiership down the line.

Representative Career

Addo-Carr has also enjoyed great success when representing New South Wales in State of Origin.

He has a total of 15 appearances for the Blues, scoring 11 tries.

Addo-Carr was a part of the New South Wales side that won the 2018, 2019 and 2021 State of Origin series against Queensland.

The 28-year-old has also appeared for Australia on nine occasions, scoring 13 tries, playing a key role in the Kangaroos' Rugby League World Cup success in 2021.

What to expect

Addo-Carr is one of the fastest players in the NRL and when he gets away few in the competition can catch him.

His time with the Bulldogs has been a difficult one so far, but he has been part of a team that has struggled on the whole.

Making the switch from super-successful Melbourne Storm to the struggling Bulldogs, will take some adjustment.

However, he started to find his form towards the end of 2023 and scored a hat-trick against the Gold Coast Titans.

The Bulldogs will be hoping for more of the same in 2024 and on his day Addo-Carr is one of he most feared winger in the NRL.
