Biography

A wing, or occasionally fullback, Jason has been a regular part of the Kiwis since being a late call-up for the 2008 World Cup squad. He wasn’t on the field for the Kiwis’ famous victory then and would love to be there at Old Trafford on November 30.

 

In 2010, Jason had a season to remember. He scored two tries in the St George Illawarra Dragons’ NRL grand final win and followed that up with a starring role for the Kiwis in the Four Nations tournament. He scored a try in the Four Nations final and made a telling break to set-up Nathan Fien’s 79th minute match-matching touch down.

 

Jason has spent his entire NRL career at the Dragons and has played over 150 matches for them. He was an NRL All Star in 2012 and has a reputation as one of the most consistent wingers in the game.
