Batley born centre, Jack Broadbent is now in his third season with the Rhinos Academy and will be looking to lead from the front in 2019.
Twelve tries in 20 games in 2018 was Broadbent’s best in blue and amber; a hat trick against Widnes early in the season and a playoff semi-final try at St Helens just a few of his highlights.
Broadbent played his junior rugby at Batley Boys before moving to Dewsbury Moor, where he joined current Academy players Brad Martin, Ben Markland and Liam Hamill.
The former Bruntcliffe Academy pupil was selected for Yorkshire youth squad in 2018, scoring two tries against the Australian school boys at Castleford.
Broadbent takes his influence from former Dewsbury Moor player and NRL star Sam Burgess and getting into the Rhinos Academy is his greatest achievement. Pre-match, Jack likes to listen to Losing It by house DJ Fisher but also likes songs by Ariana Grande. He would play in the NFL if it he didn’t want to be a rugby player and if he could attend any event past or present he would want tickets to see the 1966 World Cup Final.
