Height 185 cm
Weight 101 kg

The 22-year-old from North Shields has made steady progress since making his senior debut for Thunder in the iPro Sport League 1 Cup against Leigh Miners Rangers in 2016.

A hard-working player who enjoys the physicality of the sport, Luckley has impressed with strong work in both attack and defence in the 33 appearances he has made for Thunder over his first two seasons at the club.

Choosing to pursue rugby league as his sport of choice following a childhood where rugby union, football and cage fighting commanded his attention, Luckley has marked himself out as a talent with huge potential in the 13 man code.

Starting out at Wallsend Eagles and selected for the North East Academy, Luckley qualifies and has represented Scotland at international level and spent a year on trial with Super League side Huddersfield Giants.
