Born in Christchurch, New Zealand, McIlwrick played his junior football for the Halswell Hornets. While playing for the Hornets, he represented the New Zealand Under 16s team. In 2008, he joined the Canberra Raiders on a 3-year contract.
On 18 April 2013, McIlwrick re-signed with the Raiders on a 2-year contract.
In November 2014, the Sydney Roosters made an inquiry about the contract status of McIlwrick, looking to potentially sign him as a back-up to regular hooker Jake Friend, but the approach was ultimately turned down by the Raiders.
On 4 December 2014, after coming to an agreement, McIlwrick signed a 1-year contract with the Sydney Roosters starting in 2015 after being released from the final year of his Raiders contract.
