Sterling joined the Parramatta Eels in 1978 making his first appearance as a Fullback during the 1978 finals series, and played his first game as the Eels halfback in the 17–11 Minor-Semi replay loss to eventual premiers Manly. After a few games at Five-eighth in 1979, Sterling shifted to halfback and established himself as a player to watch in 1980.
Sterling was then chosen for the 1982 Kangaroo tour, and along with Queensland halfback Mark Murray was backup to incumbent test halfback Steve Mortimer, despite having not played in the 1982 State of Origin series. After travelling with part of the team to Perth to face a Western Australian team and thus missing a place in Australia’s first ever test against Papua New Guinea, Sterling was presented a golden opportunity by coach Frank Stanton when he was chosen for the first game of the tour against English club side Hull Kingston Rovers.
Sterling won The Rothman’s medal in 1987 and 1990 but only featured in one match of The 1991 season after suffering a shoulder injury.
