Over the last four years, it may have been a common occurrence to see the previous season described as Liam Jones’ personal best: however, it’s hard to argue that 2020 really was the defender’s finest yet. Playing every game for the season for the first time in his career, Jones formed a brilliant key defensive partnership with Jacob Weitering as the ever-presents in Carlton’s back six. Unsurprisingly, the one-percenter king - who was in the leadership group for the first time last year - has once again received acclaim from his teammates for his output over pre-season.
Draft history: 2008 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Carlton) No.32 overall.
