DATE of BirTH3/6/1994



Local lad Jack progressed through the Vikings Academy to make his senior debut in the Challenge Cup victory against Siddal in 2011. In 2010 Jack became the only player selected for the England Academy squad while 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 making 20 appearances in 2013 and finishing the season as top points scorer. Further top-flight experience came with St Helens, moving on to Sheffield and Leigh before his return to Widnes, collecting the Fans’ Player of the Year Award for 2019. Aiming to take the Vikings back to Super League Jack names the 12-man victory against Warrington, the 1895 semi-final victory at Leigh, and playing in the Final at Wembley as his career highlights. After an injury-blighted 2022, the skipper made his 150th Widnes appearance and claimed his 950th point for the club in 2023. Jack combines rugby with his role as a Sports Inclusion specialist with Community Integrated Care. He also enjoys playing golf and supports Manchester United.
