Bio

Jack Hayson is part of a crop of exciting young Rugby talent making the transition into the elite senior ranks. He completed an extended trial with the Melbourne Rebels after an impressive showing in the 2018 NRC, playing for the Sydney Rays. 

Hayson entered elite open-age Rugby via Randwick in the Shute Shield, making his First Grade debut in 2016 as a 20-year-old. In his second season for the Galloping Greens he was awarded the dual honour of First Grade ‘Best and Fairest’ and ‘Players’ Player’. 

Since then he has represented NSW as Captain of the U20s side and joined the Sydney Rays in the NRC. Design the fledgling performance of the Rays, Hayson has been a standout, identified by Rugby pundits as a ‘player to watch’ for the 2019 season. 

Hayson is a very physical backrower with the capacity to cover all three backrow positions at 6, 7, and 8. He battles well on the ball and has an enormous work rate. Hayson’s trademark ‘engine’ not only provides the stamina for his powerful running and spirited defence, but is also the driving force behind his commanding on-field presence.

Jack is a graduate of St Ignatius College Riverview where he received the triple honour of 1XV ‘Best and Fairest’, ‘Players’ Player’, and ‘Best Forward’. It is also where Jake honed his leadership skills; earning captaincy roles at school and State level.

Jack Hayson is a future star of Rugby. Whether that resolves as an opportunity in Super Rugby or overseas will be determined over this next 12 month period.
