Haha we were having a giggle about that in our trade thread. Bloke is such a MuppetCongrats on picking up Jones. He’s a cranky bastard but was well liked by Swans fans. I hope he does well for you.
I will say though that I hope that your recruiters weren’t taking advice from John Ralph. In the review last night Ralph said that Jones was exactly what the Saints needed as he “has elite foot skills”. Now Jones has many fine attributes and I’m sorry to see him go but anyone who has watched even five minutes of his play will know that the one thing he definitely does not have is elite, or even just good, foot skills. Ralph has again demonstrated that he has no f***ing idea.
Jones is a mad dog type inside/outside mid.. add him to Dunstan (inside), Steele (inside); Hannerbury (inside/outside); Ross (inside/outside); Clark (inside/outside); Hill (outside); Billings (outside); Gresham (outside) as well as two competent rucks.. suddenly our midfield group look a lot better.. the improvements will come from:I don't know how people can't be excited to get this bloke into the club.
He's done his apprenticeship as a mid under some of the best players you could ask, is now entering his prime and has a skill set that we're crying out for.
He'll now get the opportunity to play as a full time mid.... I reckon we've got an absolute steal here.
