Jackson Hastings speaks out ahead of move

Leaving the Wigan Warriors in his wake, Jackson Hastings will now be an NRL player for the second time following his move to the Wests Tigers.

It’s been a three-and-a-half years hiatus for the Australian with a move to the Salford Red Devils towards the back end of the 2018 Super League season doing wonders for his career.

A Grand Final appearance for Hastings in 2019 and Salford capped off a remarkable rejuvenation for the playmaker after leaving Australia in the doldrums.

A Man of Steel award later and the halfback earned a move to Wigan where he again helped his new team to a Grand Final appearance, though on both occasions he fell short.

His performances in the Cherry and White left NRL clubs sitting up to take note and Wests got their man on a two-year deal.

And now Hastings has spoken out for the first time since landing Down Under.

The 25-year-old tweeted: “I’ve worked so hard to give myself a chance back in the NRL, got plenty of work to still do on and away from the field but I’m determined to tick them boxes. Appreciate the support, can’t wait to get started officially in a few weeks. @WestsTigers

It’s fair to say, Hastings was deserving of an NRL deal following a superb spell in the UK and it will be interesting to see how he develops back in his native country.
