Atkins even hungrier in 2009

High-flying winger Jordan Atkins says he is even hungrier to become a mainstay of the Jetstar Gold Coast Titans backline this season.

Coming off the highs and lows of his debut season in the NRL, Atkins said he finally felt he belonged in first grade and was determined to make the most of his opportunity.

Last year, the Stanthorpe Gremlins junior burst onto the NRL scene with four tries on debut.

However, the highs of that experience were tempered by struggles with form and injury at times throughout the season.
