It was a breakout year for Jai Arrow after arriving at the Gold Coast Titans but even upon reflection, the Burleigh junior is all about the team and knows there is a lot more that this group can achieve.
Arrow arrived on the Gold Coast with 24 appearances for the Broncos to his name but with no guaranteed position in the side, the 23-year-old took the chance and opportunity to move back o his home town with the goal of becoming an NRL starter.
After putting in plenty of effort and showing a lot of promise, Arrow shot out of the clocks in the early rounds, being touted as one of the NRL's 'buys of the season'.
"I came down here to prove something and whilst personally it was a good year, it's still disappointing we're not playing finals," Arrow said. "It just wasn't to be.
"On a personal note I obviously had a season that was pretty memorable and I got to achieve some things but I'm going into 2019 still with a lot of hunger.
"The priority was to have a good pre-season and then I was lucky enough to start in round one and I had to take that opportunity with both hands.
"To run out in front of all my family and friends and here on the Gold Coast was something very special."
That early season form then turned into a real career highlight, being named in the Queensland State of Origin side for this year's series and whilst the result didn't go his way, the memories will last a lifetime.
"I always go out there to do a job for my mates. I didn't want to let anyone down and I always wanted to give 100%."
