Player Bio

Played 20 games and averaged 19 disposals for the second season in succession, but slipped down the midfield pecking order with the addition of Dom Tyson, Bernie Vince and Daniel Cross. Jones might have to add another string to his bow to cement a spot in the team in 2015, but no one could question his endeavour. Has played 42 games in two seasons, which justifies Melbourne’s strategy to use pick No. 52 on the mature-aged player in 2012.

Draft history: 2012 NAB AFL Draft 3rd round selection (Melbourne) No. 52 overall.
