Wests Tigers are pleased to announce that Great Britain international Jackson Hastings has agreed to terms with the club on a two-year deal.
The deal will see Hastings join Wests Tigers at the start of the 2022 NRL season and remain with the club until at least the end of 2023.
A junior representative standout, Hastings made his first-grade debut for the Sydney Roosters in 2014 — going on to play 34 games for the Tricolours over a three-year span that also saw him represent the Junior Kangaroos and NSW U/20’s.
Hastings joined Manly-Warringah in 2017 — playing 13 games for the Sea Eagles — before shifting to Super League. The talented playmaker starred for Salford, taking the Red Devils to their first Super League Grand Final, while also claiming the Man of Steel Award following a fine individual season that culminated in his selection for Great Britain.
Wests Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe welcomed Hastings’ pending arrival and wished him well for the remainder of the 2021 Super League season.
“On behalf of all at Wests Tigers, I’d like to say how pleased we are to have secured Jackson for the coming two seasons,” Pascoe said.
“Jackson’s versatility and on-field ability will add a lot our team in the coming years, and we look forward to welcoming him to our club at the end of his current campaign with Wigan.”
Wests Tigers Coach Michael Maguire said Hastings would be a great addition to the squad.
“I’m really looking forward to welcoming Jackson to our squad in 2022,” Maguire said.
“Jackson’s shown himself to be an extremely competitive player and someone who wants to prove himself in the NRL. We’re looking forward to him adding to our club and squad in the 2022 season and beyond.”
