An eye-catching signing by Mark Aston ahead of the 2019 season, the Director of Rugby's faith in the scrum-half was more than paid back as Thackeray made an instant impact.
Ending the season with 22 tries in 32 games in all competitons, including the Ray French Medal as Man of the Match in the 1895 Cup win, the playmaker was a joy to watch and made the Eagles a competitor in every match.
A renowned runner-of-the-ball, his skills can be on a different level and his partnership with Pat Walker was a perfect combination.
Now with the number 6 shirt up for grabs, 'Thacks' will relish the chance of creating a new partnership as the Eagles aim for a top five finish.Player Information
