Get to know one of our new recruits for season 2016 — Jack Littlejohn!
Littlejohn joins Wests Tigers after spending two seasons with the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles, where he made his first-grade debut in 2014 and played a total of five NRL games.
Prior to that, Littlejohn played his junior football with the Sydney Roosters in 2010 and 2011 alongside then NYC Coach Jason Taylor — now Head Coach of Wests Tigers.
In 2012, Littlejohn featured in the Newtown Jets' NSW Cup Grand Final win over Balmain Ryde-Eastwood Tigers, a team which included the likes of Tim Simona and Ava Seumanufagai, whom he now joins as teammates in Wests Tigers' first-grade squad.
As he began pre-season training, the 23-year-old spoke about his move to Wests Tigers.
"It's been really exciting for me," he said. "I can't wait to get out there and have a game.
"It's a very young squad here, but they've made me feel really welcome.
"It's real good to be back with Jason Taylor too. He did a lot of work with me in the 20's, especially on my kicking game, and made me a lot better player than what I was.
"My goal now is just to play some consistent footy," he said.
"I was a bit up-and-down last year so I just want to play some consistent footy — regardless of what grade I might be playing in throughout the year."
