Former Wests Tigers & Hull half joins Wakefield

Jacob Miller

Still only 22, Jacob Miller has played for a few clubs as he tries to settle in and he has a new chance to do that, after signing for the 2015 season with the Wakefield Wildcats.

Playing in nine first-grade games for the Wests Tigers in the NRL, Miller was a part of the club’s winning Holden Cup side and represented the Australian Schoolboys team in 2009.

After a stint at Hull FC, the new challenge awaits Miller and Wildcats coach James Webster is excited to have the talented half on board.

“Jacob’s signing allows us to have greater depth and competition in the halves,” said Webster.

“He is similar to many players that have signed for Wakefield in that he is a young player with a point to prove and a burning desire to cement a spot in the team.”

“I have not bought Jacob to fulfil the same role as he was asked at Hull as we already have Tim Smith, I believe we have a player that has a lot of improvement in him and I look forward to investing some time into him as a player.”

For Miller himself, he is grateful to have an opportunity and wants to make the most of his time at the Wildcats.

Wakefield have given me a great opportunity to re discover my best form and this is a challenge I’m eager to fulfil,” said Miller.

“My termination agreement at Hull FC has allowed the Wildcats and myself to agree a deal that we all hope will prove beneficial. I’m very excited about joining the team and competing for a spot in the 17 week in and week out.”

“I’m looking forward to being a part of a new club and getting to know the sponsors, staff, supporters and local community.”
