IT may be an intraclub trial but Jets captain Jobe Wheelhouse has never been more primed for a game.
Wheelhouse will make his long awaited return from a foot injury against the Jets youth team and fringe players at Ray Watt Oval on Wednesday.

The internal hit out, which will be the last chance for Scottish trialist Mark Burchill to press his claims for a contract, replaces a trial against Northern NSW club Charlestown City on Wednesday night.
Wheelhouse had surgery in May to remove a bursa from the outside of his left foot and has been back in full training for a fortnight.
The Jets kick off their season against Adelaide United at Hunter Stadium on October 7.
