Wakefield-born MacGraff followed in the footsteps of his father (James), uncle (Kylie) and brother (Thomas) to play in England. Playing his junior rugby with Auckland Sea Lions, Sydney Roosters and Newcastle Knights the Second Row was capped at Under-16 level for New Zealand before making his senior bow with Leigh. He moved to Widnes in 2011 where a successful year saw him selected for the Championship All Star team. Restricted to 11 appearances in his debut Super League season of 2012, MacGraff has since become a top flight regular with his committed hard-working performances. He passed 100 career appearances in 2014 before passing the same milestone for Widnes in 2015. 2017 was the 7th season at Lowerhouse Lane for the consistent ‘Graff ‘ who has now chalked up over 200 career appearances, 160 of which have come with the Vikings, despite a persistent back injury in 2017. In his free time MacGraff enjoys playing Tennis.
