Platt’s 1st choice position is Full Back but he has been more effective at Centre for the Bradford Bulls winning the ‘Rugby League World Centre of the Month’ for August.
Platt started his career at the Salford City Reds, making his début in Super League against the Wakefield Trinity Wildcats in the final game of the 2001 season at just 17. However he never quite made the grade and was released by the club.
Michael then signed for the Rochdale Hornets. His impressive début season was somewhat blighted by a broken jaw, although he did go on to win the National League’s Young Player Of The Year award in 2004.
Michael then joined the Castleford Tigers, and helped the Tigers gain promotion in 2005. Despite the subsequent Super League season proving to be difficult in a squad which lacked quality, Platt still managed to score 7 tries. However, after a heartbreaking 29-17 defeat against Wakefield in the final game of the season, Castleford were relegated.
