A debut NRL season saw Jacks make 12 appearances in the purple jersey.

It was a standout pre-season for the mature age recruit which earned him a spot at five-eighth when Craig Bellamy named his side for Round 1, playing alongside Cooper Cronk in a narrow victory.

A string of solid performances saw him retain his spot in the side, playing the first eight games of the season.

He was rewarded for his start to the season with a one-year contract extension.

Jacks added a further four games during the Origin period as he demonstrated a level of composure well beyond what is expected of a first year player.

The 25-year-old showcased an incredibly high work rate as evidenced by 24 tackles he averaged per game, more than many of Storm’s Premiership stars.

It is a credit to Jacks that when he was required to move to reserve grade he did so with total buy-in and a willingness to improve.

The back end of the season saw him play a key hand in helping steer the Sunshine Coast Falcons to a Queensland Cup Grand Final berth.
