One of the Tigers' most consistent performers, Stuart came to the Tigers ahead of the 2009 season from the Huddersfield Giants. Signed on a one-year deal, this was extended by a further two years well before the campaign was over.
Stuart started his professional career with his hometown club of Wigan in 2002, but before the end of the season had moved to their fierce rivals St Helens.
A second term at Knowsley Road followed, when Stuart was a regular in the Saints line up, but he moved on again to start his time with the Giants in 2004.
In that first year with the Giants, Stuart won a call up for England and over five years at the club was a regular in their senior squad, which included a Challenge Cup final appearance in 2006.
Although primarily a back rower, Stuart has covered at hooker on a number of occasions. He also stepped in to captain the Tigers at times when Ryan Hudson was sidelined.
Stuart arrived with a reputation as a player with a good work ethic and who was strong on both attack and defence, and it proved to be a reputation that was well founded.
Back row forward Stuart, signed a new one-year contract extension with the club taking him to the end of the 2012 season.
