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.
â€œJacobâ€™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.â€
â€œI 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.â€
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 Iâ€™m eager to fulfil,” said Miller.
â€œMy termination agreement at Hull FC has allowed the Wildcats and myself to agree a deal that we all hope will prove beneficial. Iâ€™m very excited about joining the team and competing for a spot in the 17 week in and week out.â€
â€œIâ€™m looking forward to being a part of a new club and getting to know the sponsors, staff, supporters and local community.â€
