Titans secure halfback Ryley Jacks

The Gold Coast Titans have signed Melbourne Storm and Sunshine Coast Falcons playmaker Ryley Jacks for the 2019 season.

Jacks, who played 25 games in the past two seasons for the Storm, was born in Brisbane and has previously played for Intrust Super Cup clubs Easts Tigers and Burleigh Bears.

He was signed to the Storm from the Sunshine Coast for the 2017 season; a few days before winning the James Ackerman Medal for being the Falcons best and fairest for the 2016 season.

"Ryley is a Queenslander who is coming home and looking for an opportunity in the NRL," Titans coach Garth Brennan said.

"He's been part of a fantastic system down in Melbourne and I'm sure he'll bring with him that professionalism and desire to succeed.

"He adds some much needed depth to our halves and I'm looking forward to him joining the club."

Melbourne Storm football director Frank Ponissi praised said the club was sad to see Jacks go.

"While we are disappointed to lose Ryley, he has handled his departure with class and professionalism," Ponissi said.

"In his time at Storm, Ryley has been the ultimate team person, he has a very strong work ethic and embraced being part of the Club.

“We wish him every success in the future." 

The Canadian international played in seven games for the Falcons this season between Rounds 3 to Round 22 and scored four tries.
