  Manly Sea Eagles player revolt drama: Who is the real Jackson Hastings? Even Jackson Hastings admits there are two Jackson Hastings. “I am very competitive, wear my heart on my sleeve, and it probably shows some bad traits at times with the way I handle myself in situations. Off-field, I am completely different and pretty approachable,” the soon-to-be former Manly utility told The Australian’s Brent Read in February.That’s certainly the Hastings this writer knows.The 22-year-old is one of the most approachable players in the game.

Jackson Hastings (born 4 January 1996) is an Australian professional rugby league footballer who plays for the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles in the National Rugby League. He plays as a halfback and five-eighth. He previously played for the Sydney Roosters.

Manly ’s Jackson Hastings wants NRL clubs to do more to protect teenage prodigies from hype as they discover the pitfalls of professional rugby league. “There were a couple of times there where I thought ‘am I going to play first grade again ?’

What’s more, the Sea Eagles are under a level of salary cap scrutiny that has made it virtually impossible for them to sign quality players.

The club has been hit with a $750,000 fine as well as $660,000 penalty to the club's salary cap for this and next season, as a result of cap breaches involving 15 players over five years, totalling $1.5 million.

This uncertainty over their cap position saw the Brookvale club fail to attract Mitchell Pearce and, after missing his signature, Trent Hodkinson in the offseason.

As a result, they began 2018 with rookie Lachlan Croker lining up alongside Cherry-Evans in the halves, with Hastings generally wearing the No.14 jersey as a backup half or hooker.

With a reduced cap for both this and next year, signing another quality utility – Hastings is described on the Sea Eagles website as being “A very talented half-back who can also play five-eighth, full-back and hooker” – would be a tough proposition.
