JAI Arrow is gunning for the next step in his development as he makes the transition to senior football.

The powerful lock won the Broncos' under-20s player of the year in 2015 but is now too old for the National Youth Competition.

He will make his Queensland Cup debut for the Norths Devils when the Intrust Super Cup kicks off on the weekend of March 12.

While moving up to play against men can be a question for some, Broncos under 20s coach Craig Hodges said Arrow was ready for the next progression towards an NRL career.

"Absolutely he is ready," said Hodges.

"He is definitely ready and the beauty of the depth of this club at the moment is that he is a patient kid and can wait for the next step.

"We don't have to rush him and every week he plays in the Queensland Cup is another opportunity for him to keep improving."

Arrow said he was happy to bide his time and watch and learn off some of the best in the game.

"I'm really enjoying having people I grew up watching around me," he told NRL.com.

"Having guys like Sam Thaiday and Parker around is pretty special and I'm really relishing it.

"I'm trying to prove a point and prove to Wayne [Bennett] that I can take the next step.

"I'm going to need to get used to playing with men because I haven't played any Queensland Cup.

"I'll need to work on my physicality and defensive skills with the step up to this higher level."
