A hard-working Prop forward who is a model of consistency. A Bulldogs junior from Harold Matthews through to SG Ball, Jack then moved to the Dragons where he played two seasons of NYC in 2011 & 2012. In his second season, he was statistically one of the competition’s top ten players in hit-ups, metres gained, and tackles made. He signed a 3-year contract with the Wests Tigers in late 2012 and made his NRL debut in Round 1 of 2013, whereby he was the youngest starting Prop in the competition. Jack had a breakthrough season, playing in 23 of the Tigers 24 games. Jack has since moved over to the English Super League after signing with the Widnes Vikings.
