Having already had some success with one former Storm half in Blake Green, you couldn’t blame the Sea Eagles for going back to the well another time.
They may do exactly that, with Nathan Ryan reporting on Fox Sports that the Sea Eagles are “exploring” the possibility of signing back-up Storm half Ryley Jacks for 2019.
Jacks is reportedly looking for a starting gig somewhere with his next deal, and with 3-game veteran Lachlan Croker currently donning the 6 at Manly, the Sea Eagles would seem a good fit.
Of course, by the end of the year, Croker may have become a household name. Regardless though, Jacks is likely to have to move on in order to get a long-term starting opportunity, as he’s currently stuck behind young stars Cameron Munster and Brodie Croft in Melbourne.
Jacks has played 13 first grade games for the Storm.
