Dubbed the Corey Parker clone, All Trades Queensland 3rd year plumbing apprentice, Jai Arrow made his NRL debut with the Broncos on Saturday against the Sea Eagles
At only 20 years old, Jai made his debut as lock forward with the Broncos in-front of a sold out crowd at Suncorp Stadium. Jai performed exceptionally and is now able to add an NRL first match win to his long list of achievements, with the Broncos bringing it home 30-6. Given his great performance and Origin period around the corner it’s a safe bet that we will only be seeing more of Jai in the next coming weeks.
All Trades are proud of Jai’s achievements and commend him for his inspiring work ethic both on the field and on the job as an apprentice.

Jai started with All Trades Queensland on January 2013 as a 1st year plumbing apprentice. Jai was playing for the under 20’s at the time and like most of our other apprentices pursuing a footy career he needed to consider his long-term options and chose a trade to fall back on.
Over the last 2 yrs Jai has been named national under 20’s player of the year and gained selection in the 2015 junior Kangaroo’s (Australian under 20 team). Named the Broncos’ NYC Forward of the Year, Players’ Player and Player of the Year at last year’s awards night, Arrow has had to prove himself with Norths Devils in the Intrust Super Cup.
Even though Jai was in the top squad Wayne Bennett realises how important a career outside of football is to the balance in the life of a sportsman and had advised that any time Jai was required to go to College of Work he would release him from scheduled training session’s to fulfil his requirements in his plumbing apprenticeship.
