Davin Crampton is a former Normanton junior with a decorated career, including a stint with the NRL Gold Coast Titans. 

He has won an Intrust Super Queensland Cup title with the Northern Pride whilst playing with the  Townsville Blackhawks, and more recently played with the Mossman Sharks, where he captained and coached in 2023. 

This isn’t Crampton's first time working with the Roosters, feeling keen to come on board and help the team power into the next season.  

“I have worked with Roosters' new coach, Joel Riethmuller, for several years at the Pride, and I am looking forward to linking up with him again,” he said. 

“My family have been very supportive of the change, and I can’t wait to be part of the Roosters in 2024”. 

Bringing years of experience to the team, Atherton Senior Rugby League president Paul Pensini is keen to see the team flourish under Crampton’s expertise.

“Davin’s a natural leader, he leads by his actions and just loves playing rugby league,” Pensini said.

“He comes to the Roosters with a wealth of playing experience from all levels and is keen to work with our younger players keen to make a mark in the game.” 

The Atherton Senior Roosters expect to start pre-season training in mid-November.
