Becoming more comfortable at fullback with each game, Jack Wighton was a pivotal member of the Raiders attack in 2016 and pulled off numerous individual defensive heroics.  

Wighton made a slow start to the year in 2016, but once he regained his confidence, he was instrumental in the Raiders red-hot form. 

Often an underlooked aspect of his game, Wighton was one of the NRL's best defensive fullbacks in 2016, making several massive hits that made highlights reels around the country.

Wighton assisted 12 tries in 2016, while scoring eight for himself.

A confident start to the season will have Wighton in the frame for representative honours in 2017.  

Away from the field, the Orange CYMS junior enjoys the country lifestyle and lists past times such as fishing and motorbike riding amongst his hobbies.
