Jake Gordon (born 6 July 1993) is an Australian rugby union player who plays for Super Rugby franchise New South Wales Waratahs, and the Wallabies.

Early life

Born in Sydney, Jake grew up in Newtown, New South Wales where he first started to play rugby, playing the ages at Canterbury Juniors. Gordon is now a product of Sydney University's first-grade side, who he has played for since 2013.

Early career

Gordon in 2016 with the New South Wales Country Eagles of the NRC.

In 2014, he was selected for the inaugural season of the National Rugby Championship (NRC), playing for the Sydney Stars.[1] He remained with the side for the 2015 season, which saw Gordon start in all nine games, including the semi-final against Brisbane City whom won the match: 47-32.[2] Since the dissolution of the Sydney Stars, Gordon changed teams to the New South Wales Country Eagles.

Super Rugby career

In 2016, Gordon signed with the New South Wales Waratahs on a one-year deal after training with the extended playing squad in 2015.[3] However, for all of the 2016 Super Rugby season, Gordon was behind Nick Phipps and Matt Lucas and did not make an appearance all season. Gordon was later a key figure in the New South Wales Country Eagles team that finished runner-up to Perth Spirit in the 2016 National Rugby Championship. He finished the season as joint-try scorer with 9 tries to his name and was voted as the 2016 Buildcorp NRC Players' Player at the annual RUPA Awards.[4]

In 2017, Gordon remained as a member of the Waratahs extended playing squad.[5] With injury to Nick Phipps in the early part of the 2017 Super Rugby season, Gordon found himself on the bench ahead of the Round 2 clash against the Lions and replaced Matt Lucas on the 60th minute to make his Super Rugby debut.[6][7] In Round 4, he scored his first Super Rugby try in just his second appearance for his franchise.[8] He earned his first start the following week against the Melbourne Rebels.[9]

On 3 June 2017, Gordon was a late call up to the Australia national squad, replacing injured team mate Nick Phipps, ahead of their June tests.[10]
