Whetton enjoying the journey and Norths after great derby victory over Gordon


When he travelled over the ditch from New Zealand Jack Whetton probably had different ideas about where he would be sitting right now.

Logic says that he would have liked to have been prepping for a couple of Super Rugby AU finals games for the Waratahs, but sometimes life leads you down some side streets on the great journey.

Whetton, the son of All Blacks great Gary, has played in all three of Northern Suburbs three Shute Shield wins so far this season and played an integral part in the statement-making 33-17 win over Gordon at North Sydney Oval on Saturday.

He came off the bench in the big win over Penrith at Nepean Rugby Park, as he did for the wet one in Newcastle against the Hunter Wildfires, but the game against the Highlanders was his starting debut.

“Yeah I’m loving it and all the guys are absolute legends,” Whetton told Rugby News.
