Biography:

The 2020 season saw Josh join an exclusive group of men who have played 200 or more first grade games for Canterbury. Jackson became the 13th player player to reach this significant milestone in the club's history when he played his 200th match against the Rabbitohs.

Born and raised in Gulgong, Jackson’s journey to chase his dream of playing in the NRL began when he moved to Newcastle in 2007 with his parents before playing in the Knights SG Ball side two years later. He would then arrive at Canterbury in 2010.

In his first season with the Bulldogs, he appeared in 27 games for the club’s under 20s side as well as claiming the player-of-the-year award and gained selection in the Junior Kangaroos.

The 2011 season saw Jackson play a further 27 matches with the under 20 side, before staring 2012 in reserve grade and finishing the year with 12 first grade games.

He made his NRL debut against the Melbourne Storm in round 16 when five minutes before kick-off, an unexpected injury to Greg Eastwood elevated Jackson from 18th man to a member of the final 17 in defeating the Storm, 20-4.

From that day on, Jackson has not looked back. He has represented his state, his country, collected the Brad Fittler Medal, been named Dally M Second Rower of the Year on two occasions, won the Provan Summons Medal in 2019 and is now captain of the club that gave him the opportunity to live out a childhood dream.

Jackson played in every game for the club in 2020 and from his 20 appearances he made 700 tackles, 1941 running metres and a tackle efficiency of 90.2%. This year will see the Captain move into his tenth season with the Bulldogs.
