Whilst at the Castleford Tigers he partnered Danny Orr in the halves. Healey was injured for most of his 1st season in 2001 but in 2002 and 2003 he captured some form and proved to be a good player for the Castleford Tigers.
Playing five-eighth and scrum-half, Healey was one of a new breed of play-makers instrumental in the development of the pin-point high kick to the corner-post and cross-field kick resulting in many tries to his centres and wingers.
Healey who had previous coaching experience working as assistant to Souths NRL coaches Paul Langmack and Arthur Katinas in 2004, took over reins of the under-20 Cronulla side from Aaron Raper.
