Paul ‘Scully’ Sculthorpe was born to play Rugby League! …and is regarded as one of the true greats of the modern game.
Touted as a future Great Britain captain before he’d even played a professional game, Scully started on his journey to the top in 1991 signing for Warrington RLFC as a fourteen year old schoolboy from his junior club Waterhead ARLFC in Oldham. Reaching his early potential he made his Great Britain debut as an eighteen year old on the 1996 Oceania Tour to PNG, Fiji and New Zealand.
In 1998 Scully signed for St Helens RLFC in a world record transfer for a forward for £375,000 aged nineteen. This was to be a move that paid great dividends to both Paul and Saints as they went on to be the most successful team in the Super League era, claiming five Challenge Cup titles, four Super League titles and two World Club Challenge titles between 1998 and 2008. During this time Scully was twice named Man of Steel (2001, 2002), still the only player ever to retain the award in consecutive years.
