|Rugby union career|
McVerry started out his career in Queensland, playing age-level rugby and then progressing on to the Reds Academy. He finally made the first team during the 2003 Super 12 season and went on to make 55 appearances for the franchise over the next 5 years. A brief stint with the Ballymore Tornadoes, whom he captained during the inaugural Australian Rugby Championship in 2007 followed before he tried his luck overseas, initially in Italy before settling down in Japan where he spent 6 seasons with Kyuden Voltex.
During his time in Japan, McVerry´s wife suffered a brain tumour which forced him and his young family back to Australia’s capital while she was undergoing treatment. This allied with an injury crisis which had severely depleted the Brumbies loose forward stocks saw him surprisingly handed a short-term contract until the end of the 2014 Super Rugby season.
