Jarrod Mullen – Looking forward to his future with the Falcons

Jarrod Mullen is living in the present, focusing on the future and is excited to be playing rugby league again.

A veteran of 211 NRL games for Newcastle Knights, Mullen was today unveiled by Sunshine Coast Falcons as their latest signing for the 2021 Intrust Super Cup season and he can’t wait to return to a team environment again.

For the past four years, Mullen – who also represented New South Wales in State of Origin – was banned from the game, including playing and training with a team, after he returned a positive drug test.

However, after hitting rock bottom and nearly dying from a drug overdose, Mullen has spent the past few years getting his life back on track, including completing a course in alcohol and drug counselling.

Now, he is looking forward to challenging himself on the field and proving to himself that he can again mix it with some of the best players in the game.

“It’s been a long journey… it’s been a tough one I will never forget,” Mullen told assembled media at the Sunshine Coast today.
