Jackson Ford is an Australian professional rugby league footballer who plays as a second-row forward and lock for the New Zealand Warriors in the NRL.

Ford was born 17 February 1998 in Shellharbour, New South Wales, Australia.

He played his junior rugby league for the Gerringong Lions in the Group 7 Rugby League.

He previously played for the St. George Illawarra Dragons in the National Rugby League.

St George Illawarra back-rower Jackson Ford became an inaugural member of the Dragons' development player squad ahead of the 2018 season.

Ford was the Dragons' Under-20s Player of the Year in 2017 in what was his first season in the competition. Making his feat even more impressive was the fact he missed the first six games of the year.

In Round 20 of the 2019 Canterbury Cup NSW competition, Ford scored 4 tries as St George Illawarra defeated the Wentworthville Magpies 36-16 at Kogarah Oval. After this performance, Ford was called into the first grade team.

Ford made his first grade debut for St George Illawarra against the Gold Coast Titans in round 21 of the 2019 NRL season which ended in a 40-28 victory. The following week against Cronulla-Sutherland, Ford scored his first try in the top grade as St George Illawarra lost the match 18-12 at Shark Park.

On 29 September 2019, Ford was named in the 2019 Canterbury Cup NSW team of the season for his performances throughout the year as St George Illawarra finished as the competition's minor premiers.

Ford progressed to the Dragons' Top 30 in 2020 and was re-signed for a further two seasons, until at least the end of the 2022 season.

Ford played a total of 12 games for St. George Illawarra in the 2020 NRL season as the club missed out on the finals.

Ford played a total of 11 matches for St. George Illawarra in the 2021 NRL season as the club finished 11th on the table and missed out on the finals, he made his long awaited return in the Round 24 win over the Wests Tigers scoring a try running 11 times for over 125 metres 20 tackles and an offload in the 37 minute stint. In September 2022, Ford was announced to have signed with the New Zealand Warriors on a two year deal, starting in 2023.

St George Illawarra back rower Jackson Ford has signed a two-year deal with the Vodafone Warriors until the end of the 2024 NRL season.

The 24-year-old Ford has banked almost 100 NRL and New South Wales Cup appearances for the Dragons in the last five seasons.

“We’re thrilled to secure Jackson as we look towards relaunching the club at home in 2023,” said Vodafone Warriors CEO Cameron George.

“He’ll add quality to our back row resources and will also bring valuable experience at both NRL and New South Wales Cup levels providing greater depth to our squad.”

Ford made his NRL debut in 2019, the same season he was named in the New South Wales Cup team of the year and won St George Illawarra’s NSW Cup player of the year award.

He has gone on to play a total of 33 first-grade games – none of them against the Vodafone Warriors – while adding 65 appearances in the New South Wales Cup.

Watched this bloke a season ago for Fantasy reasons.
I was well impressed. A workhorse, not a game breaking player but an honest 2nd rower in the Mannering mold.
Actually happy to get him.
Where he fits in the squad is the issue.
