    For those who have seen more of him in the academy, does he have much of a kicking game?
    No he doesn't......nor a passing game when playing in the Academy

    I've said this before but he looks much more like a stand off to me, I don't think he likes taking the high ball although he looks pretty good defensively. I like the way he runs and is always looking for gap, he plays with his head up much like Leon Price did. He looks to have a big future.

    His greatest asset is his running and passing game, he has a decent array of passing skills which he has developed over the last 2 seasons. Doesn't have a major kicking game to the same strengths, I think he can also kick goals. Most of his game time has been at 6 but this season he's had a few appearances at full back at Academy International level and now in Superleague.

    He has a little more time at full back but I would expect him to challenge for a half back spot in a few more seasons.

Obviously everyone can have a bad game under the high ball but he looked really off it.
    Jack just needs time at full back in Super League to get the experience to go with his undoubted ability .
