Rebels “veteran” Jake Douglas contributing on and off the field at Forshaw

In Shute Shield terms, 28-year old Jake Douglas is a relative veteran. The towering lock from Yamba on the NSW North Coast followed his older brother to Southern Districts shortly graduating high school and has been a staple of the Rebels’ pack for a number of seasons.

In a young Southern Districts side, Douglas’ experience will prove crucial this season as the Rebels look to return to the top end of the Shute Shield competition.
