About Jason

Jason Taylor has experienced a career of many highlights and many disappointments but says he wouldn’t change a thing. The tough times made the successes that much more enjoyable.

A veteran of 12 seasons, and holding a career that has included 276 first grade games across four clubs, (Western Suburbs, North Sydney, Northern Eagles and the Parramatta Eels), Jason retired at 30, after the 2001 Grand Final whilst holding the title of the highest pointscorer in the history of Rugby League.

Since retiring, as well as enhancing his media profile with Channel Nine and their rugby league coverage, he has been honing his coaching skills. As a result, his appointment from assistant to head coach has given this gifted player a chance to demonstrate that his talents can grow from star player to head coach. In 2006 Jason was appointed coach of his beloved Parramatta Eels.

He is now regularly booked as an MC for award presentations and product launches. In his keynote presentation Jason draws on personal experiences and observations from his sporting career while speaking with humour and feeling.

Jason Taylor was the Western Suburbs Rookie of the Year in 1990 moving to Player of the Year in 1991 and played for NSW in the State of Origin team in 1993. Moving to the North Sydney Bears in 1994, Jason went on to become North’s Player of the Year two years in row and won the prestigious Rothmans Medal for the best and fairest player in the ARL competition. In 1998 he received the Dally M Captain of the Year Award.

Jason broke both the goal kicking and point scoring records at North’s as well as setting a new mark for consecutive first grade matches, playing 194 games in succession, missing only two games through injury, in his twelve year career.

At Parramatta, Jason not only broke the NRL all time pointscoring record but also broke Mick Cronin’s record of the most goals scored by an individual. Jason’s 2001 team set a new record for the most points scored by a team in one season and they also won the Ken Stephens Award for service to the games both on and off the field.

Parramatta Chief Executive, Denis Fitzgerald at the Parramatta presentation night, described Jason Taylor as the most professional player he had seen in 17 years at the helm. In season 2001 he became the highest point scorer of any player in the history of rugby league.
