A centre and prolific try-scorer, Jacobson played in Newtown's grand final win in 1943. After returning from interstate Army service,[3] he resumed playing for Newtown the following year and played in the 1944 grand final loss. In his final season at Newtown, Jacobson was the League's top try-scorer, with 27 tries from 19 appearances.
