The Griffiths brothers hold a special place in the hearts of many Jets fans, and today we sat down with striker Ryan Griffths, brother of ex-Jets and current Chinese Super League based twins Joel and Adam, to chat...
The younger brother of ex-Jets and current Chinese Super League based twins Joel and Adam Griffiths, Ryan joined the Jets late in 2010 after spending a number of years playing his trade overseas in China and Romania.
Known around the club for having a quick wit, the 30-year old is also adept when handing out his one-liners in other languages.
The well traveled recruit goes into this season well prepared after a solid pre-season. On the pitch the striker is fast, elusive and should be a major threat to all opponents during the season ahead.
