Carl Webb

died at 42 on Thursday, December 21, 2023, following a long battle with Motor Neurone Disease (MND). He was first diagnosed in 2020 and in an interview earlier this year, he revealed the struggles that had come with his battle.

was an Australian professional rugby league footballer who played as a prop, second-row, and lock in the 2000s and 2010s. Born in Mount Isa, Queensland, Australia, Webb was of Indigenous Australian and New Zealand descent. He played for the Dalby Diehards in the Toowoomba Rugby League competition during the mid-1990s and the Toowoomba Clydesdales before joining the Brisbane Broncos.

Webb made his NRL debut for the Brisbane Broncos in 2000 against the North Queensland Cowboys. The next year, he made his debut in State of Origin, representing Queensland, scoring one try. He won the 2001 Brisbane Broncos season's Rookie of the Year award. However, inconsistent form and injuries led to him being in and out of first grade until he was contracted to the North Queensland Cowboys for the 2005 season.

Webb had a strong start to the 2005 NRL season, earning a position in the Queensland Maroons. Injury impeded his season, and he was later suspended for punching, forcing him to watch the 2005 NRL Grand final loss to the Tigers from the sidelines. In 2007, Webb started the season strongly but suffered a broken jaw early in the season.

In May 2008, Webb played in his debut test for the Australian national team against New Zealand. On 20 May 2008, he resigned with the Cowboys until the end of the 2010 season, rumoured to be worth around A$300,000 a year. He was named in the Australia training squad for the 2008 Rugby League World Cup but was not selected to play.

Webb was selected to play at prop forward in the 2010 All Stars match for the Indigenous all Stars team. He signed with the Parramatta Eels in August 2010, playing there for the 2011 and 2012 seasons. In 2011, Webb announced his immediate retirement from the NRL after playing six games for the Eels.
