Biography

Hailing from Ardrossan, on the Yorke Peninsula, Sam Jacobs was originally selected by Carlton in the 2006 rookie draft. The Woodville-West Torrens product scattered 17 games across five years for the Blues before he was traded to Adelaide.

Since his Adelaide debut in 2011, Jacobs has received three All Australian nominations and has averaged 30+ hit-outs a game in eight of his nine seasons. The ever-reliable ruckman had only missed six games in his time at West Lakes, prior to 2019.

After marrying wife Izzy on New Year’s Eve in 2016, Sauce added fatherhood to his resume in 2018 with the birth of their daughter, Imogen Rose.

Jacobs played his 200th game in Round 22 of the 2019 season, before being traded to the GWS Giants for the 2020 season.
