Currently Ryan plays rugby union for the Newcastle Falcons in the Aviva premiership. Ryan was born in Masterton New Zealand but moved to Australia with his family as a child. Ryans first taste of rugby league came with the Coogee Wombats, a club in the Sydney competition. In 2006 Ryan was signed by the Melbourne Storm and was immediately sent to play for the Norths Devils in the Queensland cup. By 2007 Ryan played his only game for the Melbourne Storms NRL side which came in round 2. A recurring knee injury cut short the rest of the 2007 season for Ryan. When the Warriors showed interest in Ryan durring the 2007 season so Ryan decided to return home to New Zealand and signed for the Warriors on a one year deal for the 2008 season. Ryan would play five games in the NRL for the Warriors but was unable to force his way past test centres Jerome Ropati and Brent Tate. Ryans debut for the Warriors was against the Newcastle Knights in round 4 of 2008. At the end of the 2008 season Ryan was released by the Warriors. Ryan wished to remain in New Zealand so switched codes to rugby union, signing with the Otago RU and playing 19 games in the NPC. By 2010 Ryan was no longer required by Otago so moved to England where he took up a contract with the Newcastle Falcons and as of 2012 Ryan remains with the club.

John played his junior football for Port Kembla and the local Dapto team. John was quickly identified as a rare talent by the Illawarra Steelers and he signed with them in 1990 and as a 17 year old made his NRL debut for the club. By 1991 Johns talents were being recognised at representative level and he was selected to play for City firsts, again he was selected for City firsts in 1992. In 1992 NSW half back Ricky Stewart was injured and so John was brought into the NSW squad on the back of strong club and City firsts form. NSW won this game but John was forced to make way for Stewarts return from injury. It would be a full five years before john would play for NSW again. In 1994 John won the Illawarra Steelers player of the year award. Feeling stale at the Steelers John moved to the Sydney Roosters and played 15 games in the 1996 season. However John was unable to shift PNG test halfback Adrian Lam so moved to the Parramatta Eels on a three year deal. Midway through the finally season of his three year deal and being on the outer with coach Brian Smith due to fitness issues john requested and was granted a release from his final season at the Eels to join the Warriors. Johns experience was a huge draw for the Auckland club and he was named captain for only his second game for the club. Johns debut came against the Penrith Panthers in round 15 of 1999. Wishing to be closer to his family John returned to Sydney, playing for the Wests Tigers in 2001. Having only played 18 games for the Tigers John announced that he was retiring with immediate effect before the end of the season, sighting a lack of enthusiasm after a 64 - 0 hiding from the Melbourne Storm. In 2003 John was named in the Illawarra commemorative "team of steel", celebrating players of the clubs first 25 years. 1997 saw John play his one and only international for Australia when he played against the Rest of the World side at Suncorp Stadium. Post retirment would see John working with Aboriginal youth in an education setting and like Stacey Jones open his own Subway franchise restaurant. John continues his involvement with the game by coaching a local club team in Illawarra.
