Dom Crosby is a professional Rugby League player in the Super League, playing for elite clubs such as Wigan Warriors, Warrington Wolves and currently Leeds Rhinos.
Dom’s career started at the team he had supported all of his life, Wigan Warriors. It was a childhood dream come true. During his time there, Dom won 2 Super League Grand Finals at Old Trafford in 2013 and 2016.
The 2016 Grand Final was Dom’s last game at Wigan. Over the next few weeks, Dom joined Warrington Wolves and welcomed a new addition to the family.
His daughter Ada was born in March 2017, she died a month later in hospital. It was completely unexpected and there were no words to describe the sheer magnitude of her death. The worst imaginable news any parent can receive.
Dom took some time away from the rugby pitch to focus on his mental health.
The following season, the opportunity arose to move on to another club. After a discussion with his Head Coach at Warrington, Dom made the move to Leeds Rhinos and it would be a fresh start away from the bad memories that had plagued his career at Warrington.
Dom and his wife Megan welcomed their second child Oscar in 2018 and moved from Wigan to Leeds.
Dom knew he wanted to do something to support others who are experiencing the same feelings he has dealt with. There were no real charities that provided such a unique approach to bereavement, so when Dom came across Strongmen he knew it was something he wanted to get involved with. To be around men who have experienced the same feelings and thoughts and being able to chat about it in a safe environment.
