Early lifeEdit

Club careerEdit

Wigan WarriorsEdit

Tierney made his Super League début for Wigan in June 2013, scoring a try in a 33–32 win against Widnes Vikings.[5] In 2014 and 2015, Tierney spent time on dual registration at Workington Town where he made 25 appearances scoring 6 tries in his time in Cumbria. In 2016 Tierney won his first major piece of silverware after Wigan beat Warrington in the Super League Grand Final; he became the first son to follow his father's footsteps and win a Grand Final.[6][7]

In July 2017, after struggling to break back into the Wigan side, Tierney was loaned to Catalans Dragons until the end of the season, where he played in their Million Pound Game victory over Leigh to stay in Super League.[8]

Catalans DragonsEdit

In October 2017, Tierney signed a 2 year deal at Catalans after a successful loan period in 2017.[9]

He played in the 2018 Challenge Cup Final victory over the Warrington Wolves at Wembley Stadium.[10]

International careerEdit

Via his heritage, Tierney is eligible to represent both Scotland[11] and Jamaica through his paternal grandmother and paternal grandfather, respectively.

Tierney made his international debut for Scotland in the 2016 Four Nations. He played in two of Scotland's games and scored one try.
