Jason Nightingale (born 20 September 1986 in Sydney, New South Wales) is an Australian professional rugby league footballer for the St. George Illawarra Dragons of the National Rugby League. A New Zealand international representative winger, he was a member of the World Cup winning Kiwis team that beat Australia in the 2008 World Cup Final at Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane.
Nightingale's position of choice is wing, he can also operate at fullback.
He was called up to represent the New Zealand Kiwis for the ANZAC day test at the SCG. He has recently been named in the New Zealand Kiwi's 49 man training squad alongside fellow Dragon's Chase Stanley and Rangi Chase for the rugby league world cup 2008.
In August 2008, he was named in the New Zealand training squad for the 2008 Rugby League World Cup. He originally missed out of the final 24-man Kiwi squad for the 2008 Rugby League World Cup, but was named as a replacement for the injured Brent Webb..
In 2009, Nightingale was often selected more often for St George Illawarra's feeder side Shellharbour Dragons in the NSW Cup than the first grade team. This was the result of both an extended injury period to Nightingale mid-season, and a lack of injuries to his competitors for the first grade team's fullback and wing positions. The few times he was selected for the first grade team, he often played at centre or as a substitute prop.
