Player Bio

It was a surprise when Demons coach Simon Goodwin elevated Jack Viney to the co-captaincy, but in typical Jones style got on with things and again produced a consistent season. He spent time at half-back, on the wing and as an inside midfielder and it made the Demons a more flexible team. Missed six games with a niggling quad injury in the middle of the season, but finished the year strongly. Averaged 27.4 disposals and a career-high 5.4 tackles a game. Nobody was as disappointed as Jones when Melbourne narrowly missed the finals and you get the sense he will be doing everything in his power to ensure the Demons are featuring in September in 2018.
