After moving from Saracens to Wasps for the start of the 2009/10 season, Jacobs had an outstanding first year making 33 appearances; more appearances than any other player. Having played most of his rugby in the centres, he showed his versatility with some impressive performances at full back last season and Director of Rugby Tony Hanks has hinted that he could also be seen in further positions in the backline.
Before coming to England, Sydney-born Jacobs played for the Super 14 finalists NSW Waratahs. 2007 was the year that he won the Waratahs' Best Back Award in 2007, after starting in nine out of thirteen matches that season.
Jacobs played 35 games at Super rugby level between 2004 and 2008, before which he also represented Central Coast Rays and Club side Warringah, where he faced a tough run of injuries.
The holder of an Australia A Cap, Jacobs qualifies for British Passport through his English wife.
