im sorry what?

you think Newnes is better than Zac Jones??

BWWWHAAAHAHAHAHAHA

far out thats a ridiculous comment.
Jones - faster harder goal scorer brwak lines

Newnes??? you think he has footy iq???
LOL wait for it bro.
The only thing newnes can do is run all day. But he does that slowly, with terrible decisions. Plus hes soft.

omg jones is so much better. please bro stop with the BS

Newnes seemed to have some potential a few years back and just seemed to fall off a cliff. Maybe he can break out at a new club. Could be a bargain for Carlton.

I don't think he fell off a cliff, they just made him a defensive forward.

very happy to.
Newnes 11 mediocre games with 5 of the easiest goals youll see

ZJones 21 games - 4 out due to suspension cause he s a mad bastard.
24 possie average, 18 magnificent goals and a premiership medal.

I have no idea who Newnes is, but you're going to be pretty disappointed with Jones - bloke can't kick.

There’s nothing wrong with newness as a player mate was in our leadership group had a down year this season before that was a very consistent player for us got good pace kicks goals still a good age plenty of footy left was disappointed we let him go would get a game at most clubs!
Yeah, a few here are giving the wrong impression. He's no star, but he's no spud either. Solid, professional, durable, holds his own, no surprises. Certainly worth a spot on most AFL lists.

I don't get this signing at all. Delist the best state midfielder and sign a borderline best 22 player? Blake acres was the one worth going after
Best state midfielder?

We’d have likely had to give a fair bit for Acres, Newnes was far better value.

Jones is 24. About to prime. Hardly topping up.

2017/18/19
-Battle
-Marshal
-MKing
-Long
-Clark
-Parker
-Wilkie
-Bytel
-Coffield
-Howard
-Kent
-Jones
-Hill
-Ryder
-Butler

We have smashed it last 3 years.
Wilkie and Marshal off rookies
10,68 into Clark, Battle and Long
6, 59 into Hill, Howard

got rid of waste.

Saints in 2020 are going to be insanely good. Kids finally got 50-100 games. and with jones/hill/howard and leaders back ... BOOM
This has nothing to do with Newnes.

Take this rubbish to the St Kilda board thanks.

Back in topic - Saints fans used to moan and ask WHY everytime richo OVER EVERYONE chose Newnes in the 22.

Rattens within 3 games - Newnes dropped. Saints fans celebrated.
Blues fans should be pissed off that your club has gone and added this liability.

He's a DFA and is coming in as depth. Bit of an indictment on your club that he was your leadership group and had a 2 year contract in front of him.

If you are going to attempt to troll, at least try to make your dribble factual.

Newnes wasnt dropped under Ratten. He had gastro and ended up losing 5kg from it.

Your club offered this liability a 2 year deal and didn’t want to lose him.
