Profile

The 26-year-old will join forces with the Black & Whites for the 2020 season, as Hull staved off stiff competition from a host of Super League clubs to secure the services of Jones, who won the Grand Final with St Helens in 2014.

Following a brief spell in the Premiership with rugby union outfit Exeter Chiefs in 2015, Jones returned to Super League with Salford Red Devils ahead of the 2016 season.

Currently in his fourth season with Ian Watson’s side, Jones has been an ever-present for the Red Devils in 2019, scoring five tries in the process.

The back-rower has been strongly admired for most of his career and the statistics show why. This season alone he is one of the competition’s leading metre-makers, averaging over 100 metres and 5 tackle busts a game. He also stands as one of the top offloaders in the competition.

His eye-catching performances have also earned him a call-up to the England Performance programme, whilst he is also being tipped as a potential candidate for the Great Britain tour at the end of the season.

Previous Clubs: Salford, St Helens, Rochdale (loan), York (loan).

Community Clubs: Blackbrook Royals, Chorley Panthers and Leyland Warriors
