After his first taste of NRL action Ryley Jacks is determined to experience more.
Jacks earned his first grade debut on Friday night, playing in the No.6 jersey.
He had a hand in Storm’s opening try just over two minutes into the game and was rock-solid at both ends of the field.
It was an impressive debut and having earned his spot in the side, the 24-year-old is now determined to keep it.
“I am treating it like it is my spot now, I have just got to keep performing,” Jacks said.
“Obviously Bill is coming back whenever he is right so Cam could go back to that five-eighth role and I could miss out. I’ve just got to make the most of the games I get to start the year off.”
“I wasn’t thinking I’d get my shot in Round 1, maybe during the year some time.
“However I’ve been training really well the last three weeks, been trialing well and Craig went with me at the last minute so it was really good.”
