There are many words you can use to describe Jared Waerea-Hargreaves, but the one that sums him up the best as a player is passionate. 

Since he joined the Roosters in 2010, Jared has always played with plenty of emotion, taking plenty of big runs, making big hits and never backing down from a confrontation.

In past years, it has gotten the best of him on occasion.

This year however, he has learned how to perfectly manage his aggression.

As a result, Jared Waerea-Hargreaves had his best season to date, making a huge impact at the back end of the season in particular.

His incredible final twenty minutes against the Bulldogs in Round 21 was a massive highlight, as he almost single-handedly dismantled the Bulldogs forward pack to put the Roosters on the front foot.

Jared’s season was brought to a grinding halt in Round 24 when he went down with an ACL injury against the Brisbane Broncos.

Though his season was cut short, he made a huge impact and turned plenty of heads with his damaging form.

He is a leader, a loyal clubman and one of the most damaging forwards in the NRL.
