BIO

A Canberra local with plenty of potential, in his limited game time last season, Jordan Jackson-Hope showed why he belongs at Super Rugby level.

Beautifully balanced with an elite eye for space, the centre/flyhalf can pull the strings with terrific poise. Since he made his debut in 2016, Jackson-Hope has steadily grown as a player, and in 2019 we may see him flourish.

A product of esteemed rugby school St. Edmund’s College in Canberra, Jackson-Hope represented the ACT representative sides throughout his junior career and was selected for the Australian Schoolboys in 2014.

Jackson-Hope would represent the Brumbies U20’s and Combined States U20’s in 2015 before linking up with the Tuggeranong Vikings in the John I Dent Cup, leading the Vikings Colts to a Premiership.

2016 was a breakout year for Jackson-Hope, the youngster captaining the Brumbies in the inaugural Super U20’s competition and being selected to represent the Australian at that level at the Junior World Cup where he starred, scoring a try and showing the world his immense potential.

The Utility Back would go on to make his Brumbies debut against the Melbourne Rebels, pulling off a try assist with his first touch of the ball in Super Rugby. Jackson-Hope would make his second Brumbies appearance against the Sunwolves in the same year, scoring a memorable try.

Kyle Godwin’s departure leaves a hole open at inside centre for a guy who can be a playmaker outside either Christian Lealiifano or Wharenui Hawera, and Jackson-Hope fits that bill perfectly.

He was superb in Tuggeranong Vikings colours while not in the Brumbies squad last season, terrifying defenders with his subtlety and vision.

Time is on Jackson-Hope’s side as well.  At the tender age of 22, there’s no rush for Jackson-Hope to break through as a starter but expect to see much more of the one they call ‘Rabs’ in 2019.
