Profile

Tall, thin and fast, Steve Magoffin is a successful Western Australian import who has stepped comfortably into the first-class arena since leaving Queensland. With the state's bowling stocks faltering, the Warriors looked to Magoffin, who was a Queensland Academy of Sport player, and he made his debut in 2004-05, playing every Pura Cup match and adding 28 wickets at 35.10. At 194cm, Magoffin has a similar frame to his mentor Greg Rowell, the former Australia A bowler, and he is an especially intimidating prospect on the WACA. He can also swing the ball and has been responsible for big hauls, including a career-best 8 for 47 against South Australia in 2005-06. He finished that season with 25 victims at 25.52 and then spent the winter in England, where he starred against the touring Sri Lankans with 4 for 14 in their warm-up game against the Sir Paul Getty XI.
