THE Giants have handed a full-time Super League contract to 18-year-old scrum half Jack Miller .
The talented youngster (above) has been a key member of the club’s junior teams for the past two seasons and has been making a big impression in the Under 19s side this season.
Miller – the son of Doncaster head coach Tony Miller – also showed up well in the first-team trial clash at St Helens in January.
And Head of Youth Performance Pete Riding is delighted his talent has been recognised.
“Jack is a smart young player who I feel needs the full-time environment to really get the best out of him,” he said.
“He has a good work attitude and a nice kicking game, which is something of a rarity these days and a skill that Jack needs to build his game around.
“Organisationally, he is learning his position and it will only help him working full time day in day out alongside the likes of Grix, Robinson and Brough with the senior coaches.
“It will also give a boost to all the lads in the 19s as it shows that a clear pathway to the full-time environment and the next step towards a Super League career is available at this club if a young player excels.
“Jack has had a few sessions with the first teamers already and I was delighted that Paul Anderson wants him to step up and see how he fares with the challenge ahead.”
Miller has signed a full time contract until the end of the 2014 season.
