Player Bio

The skipper may have missed out on his fourth successive best and fairest, but that did not mean he had a down year. In fact, Jones took his game to new heights in terms of his leadership qualities, as coach Paul Roos noted. Averaged a tick under 24 disposals a game despite – it was revealed after the season – a prolapsed disc in his neck. As a result, Jones was not in full training until after the Christmas break. A warrior in the engine room, Jones’ loyalty to the cause is unwavering.

Player honours: best and fairest 2012, 2013, 2014; 2nd best and fairest 2007; NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2006, 2007; co-captain 2014; captain since 2015.
Brownlow Medal: 2015 votes 10; career votes 56.
Draft history: 2005 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Melbourne) No. 12 overall.
