JACK Rogers yesterday be­came only the fourth player to score a hat-trick of tries on de­but in the un­der-20 Na­tional Youth Com­pe­ti­tion.

The son of dual in­ter­na­tional Mat Rogers and grand­son of Cronulla great and Test cen­tre Steve Rogers, Jack (above) en­sured it was a day his fam­ily will never for­get.

He scored three tries in only 50 min­utes while play­ing on the wing for the Sharks.

De­spite Cronulla’s two­point loss to Par­ra­matta, Rogers was not the only fam­ily act to fin­ish on the score­sheet.

The grand­son of Reg Gas­nier, five-eighth Jack Wil­liams, also bagged a try for the Sharks.

Rogers joined Cronulla this year from school­boys rugby union on a train-and-trial con­tract af­ter mov­ing from the Gold Coast.
