Jack Owens


Place of BirthWidnes, England



Local lad Jack progressed through the Vikings Academy to make his senior debut in the Challenge Cup victory against Siddal in 2011, picking up the ‘Man of the Match’ award in his second appearance, a televised fixture, but at the age of 16 was unable to claim the Champagne! In 2010 Jack became the only player selected for the England Academy squad not attached to a Super League club, going on to make his international debut on his 17th birthday against France. His Super League debut came against Bradford Bulls in 2012 before moving to the wing in 2013, making 20 appearances and finishing the season as top points scorer with 166 points. Further top-flight experience came with St Helens, moving on to Sheffield and Leigh before his return to Widnes. Aiming to take the Vikings back to Super League Jack names the 12-man victory against Warrington as his career highlight. Away from rugby he plays golf and supports Manchester United
