I don't think we have seen enough of him to know if he will play round 1.
Saw a recent interview with Clarkson talking about Hodge, Lewis and Mitchell. He stated one of the things about all of them was that they would try to prove the coach wrong as a motivation whether dropped or criticised.I hope not,we want someone who plays for the love of the jumper,love of the club,to be the best he can be,not someone who is motivated by trying to prove a point to his coach.
partially, but he looked a bit lost in the structure, the tempo of the game wasnt there and most probably not the fitness to run-out a complete AFL game, but more importantly there are 3 or 4 ahead of him that deserve a spot in the backline before him, being Leinart, Garner, Bergman etc. I think his ceiling this year will be 3 or 4 games tops, and there's nothing wrong with that.Judging him slightly early based on an internal trial where half the team swapped guernseys?
Josh Carr turned us around when he debuted, because of just that. We he did not have the ball “he imposed himself” in the game in every pack, he was a game changer for usI like in the interview when he hit Corcoran, ‘I hadn’t had an impact with the ball so took my opportunity to impose myself’ or something along these lines. It’s that mentality we have been missing/manufacturing from 2015-2019 that lead us to mediocrity. Last year and now this year, this ‘impact’ matches feels genuine.
You've got to look better than 'ok' to get a gig for us right now though. It's not 2011 anymore.Other than being rundown from behind by Dixon early, I thought Jones looked ok in the internal trial.
That's fine if he has to work for a spot it's a good position for us to be in, I just take issue with w@nkers saying he's miles off it he's a manchild & has impressed on the track he's not some light framed project player waiting for puberty to hit.You've got to look better than 'ok' to get a gig for us right now though.

Bergman showed a lot more than Jones IMO. If a spot opens up in defence I'd have Bergman first in line.
So anyone who has a different opinion to you is a w***er, such a mature contribution. Arrogant prick. How about you save the smart ass attitude for the day Jones proves his readiness for AFL football.That's fine if he has to work for a spot it's a good position for us to be in, I just take issue with w@nkers saying he's miles off it he's a manchild & has impressed on the track he's not some light framed project player waiting for puberty to hit.
