Jacob Miller wants to emulate Michael Dobson

Hull FC halfback Jacob Miller is keen to make his mark in East Yorkshire this season, and sees a potential role model in a former Hull KR star.

Michael Dobson departed the Robins in the close season for NRL side Newcastle Knights, after becoming a cult hero on the east bank of the River Hull in his five years with Rovers.

“It’d be good to do that,” Miller told Love Rugby League.

“He had a great career at Hull KR. I’d like to do something similar to what he’s done over this side of the river. That’d be nice.

“It’s exciting times here. We’ve made a few really good signings for this season. All the boys are looking forward to round one of Super League.”

Miller prefers to remain circumspect, however, when it comes to detailing his precise goals for the season ahead. He is clearly determined to help the team win as many games as possible, though.

“I haven’t set too many goals, personally,” he added.

“The main focus is how the team goes. As a halfback, if the team’s winning and the team’s getting the job done on the field, then you’ve done something right.

“Winning some games will do me fine.

“But I want to make a name just as myself, wherever I’m playing, and get the most out of myself.”

Dobson has used his time in the city of Hull to earn a move back to the NRL. Miller is refusing to see his time at the KC Stadium as a potential springboard to bigger things, however.

“It could be, but at the moment I couldn’t be happier at Hull,” he said.

“I’m loving training, and loving where I live, and at the moment I wouldn’t choose to be anywhere else.”
