Carl Doherty (born 12 July 1975 in New Zealand) is a former professional rugby league player. His position of preference was Fullback.

Playing career[edit]

A Glenora Bears junior, in 1999 he shot to prominence when he was called up from the local Auckland scene by the Auckland Warriors.[1] He played five games for the club in the National Rugby League during the 1999 season. He was one of several options trialled by the Warriors as they searched for a replacement for the injured Matthew Ridge. However, despite being one of the more successful replacements, he was not re-signed by the club for the 2000 season and instead joined the Mt Albert Lions in the new Bartercard Cup competition.[2]

Later years[edit]

In 2002 he competed in the New Zealand Marist Brothers Spillane rugby union tournament for the North Harbour side and was named in the team of the tournament.[3]
