Troy Stone (born 13 December 1971 in Paddington, New South Wales[1]) is an Australian rugby league player who played professionally in England and Australia.

Playing career[edit]

A junior from Goulbourn United, Stone debuted in 1993 for the Cronulla Sharks as a centre.[2]

However, in 1994, when he moved to join the Dragons he moved into the front row. He played in the 1996 Grand Final for the Dragons, which they lost to Manly. Also in 1996 Stone played in his only representative game, playing for NSW City in their annual clash with NSW Country.

Stone then played the 1997 Super League season with the new Hunter Mariners franchise before joining the Canterbury Bulldogs. He played from the interchange bench for the Canterbury Bulldogs in their loss at the 1998 NRL grand final to the Brisbane Broncos.[2]

Halfway through the 2001 NRL season he joined the Huddersfield Giants after receiving little game time at the Bulldogs.[3]

He spent a season with the Widnes Vikings before retiring at the end of 2002.[4]
