Former Rooster and Sea Eagle Jackson Hastings has been named the English Super League's Steve Prescott Man of Steel.

The 23-year-old, who spent five years in the NRL, signed with the Salford Red Devils last season after controversially departing Manly amid speculation surrounding his relationships his then-teammates.

Hastings has had a profound impact on Salford in 2019, his first full season in the Super League, leading his club to a grand final appearance after a second-last finish in 2018.

He has parlayed his success with Salford into a contract with Super League powerhouse Wigan from next year.

Hastings has played 35 games in total for the Red Devils, scoring 11 tries.


  1. When he eventually returns to Australian League he will be able to pick and choose who he wishes to play for.

    Yet another player under The watchful eye of Trent Robinson whom he gave Hastings the guidance ou nto the Nrl from The Sydney Roosters.

  2. West Tigers would be a good fit.
    Maybe Penrith if Jerome Luai doesn’t work well with Cleary. Maybe the Cowboys if there young halves don’t work with Morgan.

  3. manly are the big losers in this story
    dce is on more than 1.3 for another 5 years ?? omg, he is only going to get worse with his hissy fits and demands on the club, any player that shows a bit of character and talent at manly will be moved on while dce is in charge.

  4. DCE in fairness absolutely carry’s that Manly team. Yes The turbo brothers and the big forwards also do a good job but he is the heart and soul of that team he plays 200% and is just great for them. That’s coming from a Warriors fan

  5. Young Hastings team was defeated by St Helens. Now St Helens will play Sydney Roosters for the third time to see who is the best of the best on planet Earth.
    Sydney get a chance to be the first club to win back to back World Club Championships.
