Jackson Ford may be behind some Origin stars at the Dragons but if his 2019 season is any indication of his potential then the Red V certainly have a future star on their hands.
Enjoying a breakout campaign in the Canterbury Cup NSW, Ford established himself as one of the most damaging edge-runners in the competition with 13 tries in his 20 appearances – the most of any forward
Further to wreaking havoc with his try-scoring ability, he produced 12 line-breaks, 82 tackle-breaks, 3154m, and 678 tackles – well and truly cementing his place in the Team of the Year.
His best performance as undoubtedly in Round 20 against the Wentworthville Magpies, recording four tries, three line-breaks, 16 tackle-breaks, 169m and 35 tackles in one of the most incredible individual performances of the season.
He deservedly earned an NRL debut in Round 21 against the Gold Coast Titans, and finished the yer with five games and a maiden first-grade try to his name.
Although he may have the likes of Tyson Frizell and Tariq Sims in-front of him, there it little doubt he will provide invaluable depth throughout 2020 and the potential to break through in the near-future.
