New recruit Jai Arrow will tomorrow head into his first Queensland Emerging Origin camp and after just 24 NRL matches it was a shock for the Burleigh junior.
Arrow joined the Titans back in November and has impressed coaching staff with his application and fitness during what has been a gruelling pre-season. It’s also something he’ll be looking to do over the next three days.
“I’m really looking forward to it,” Arrow said. “It’s a great honour for me and I was pretty stoked to be honest.

“I haven’t played a lot of NRL but I’m looking forward to getting in there, getting to know the coaching staff and also as much as I can from the other players in the group.”
The 22-year-old won’t be alone in camp, with fellow new recruit Brenko Lee and also halfback Ash Taylor in the squad.
“It will be good to have those familiar faces but we’ll all be going in and looking to learn a few things. There are a few guys there that are quite experienced so I’ll look to learn what I can from them.”
Whilst a large portion of his NRL starts have come from the interchange bench, Arrow will be looking to gain a permanent role in the starting side, in 2018.
“It’s been a tough pre-season and I’m wanting to contribute a lot more this year so hopefully I’m doing enough to get that starting spot.”
