No. #1 priority for Jayden Campbell in 2021

Running out at fullback for the Titans in the Club's trial match against the Burleigh Bears, development player Jayden Campbell became the second generation to don the number one jersey.

"I played last year but I came off the bench, so to wear the number one was pretty good," Campbell said.

While Jayden was running out at Pizzey Park on the Gold Coast, his father (Club legend and former Titans fullback Preston) was 1500 kilometres north in Townsville.

"All my family were up in Townsville for the All Stars game but I had my nan and pop there so that was good," he said.

"I was at Burleigh last year with most of the boys there so it was good, it was a good first game and first hit-out.

"It was my first time playing with all of the new NRL rules, the six again rule and all that, so it took me a bit to adjust to it."

Having grown up around football, Campbell junior says he still gets a thrill from training with the NRL squad.

"I still come to training and I'm still a bit star struck by some of the boys," he said.

"It's always good to get in here and to learn off them and to be on the same paddock as them is awesome.

"I come in and I see AJ (Brimson), I see Tyrone Peachey and all of those boys and I just think wow I'm here with them, so I don't think it will wear off anytime soon.

"Him (Brimson) and Corey Thompson are the ones I've been watching a lot, just trying to learn off them and see what they do around the park and try and add that to my game."

Campbell will take those tips to the Tweed Seagulls in 2021, as he looks to grow his game in the Intrust Super Cup.

"I haven't even debuted for Cup yet, so that's my first goal.

"Last year with COVID I didn't get much footy, even the A-grade competition I broke my thumb the first round so I didn't play much footy.

"Hopefully over the next few months I can get some more games and see what it (Intrust Super Cup) is like.

"I need to get some good consistent footy there and then just bide my time (before an NRL debut)."
