    Welcome to the lad.

    What's his playing style like / what are his attributes?

    Re: Weclome to the Western Bulldogs - Auther Jones

    Here is a write up from Knightmare

    Player focus

    A draft smokie who little was expected of for Western Australia in the Grand Final curtain raiser against South Australia, Arthur Jones was the star of the day, playing a major part in his side's five-point win.

    With just the nine games of WAFL Colts exposure before Saturday's match, club recruiters will be scrambling for game tape of Jones and discussing whether he should be added to their draft boards after playing a high impact per possession game in which he kicked two goals in 10 minutes and was Western Australia's most damaging around the ground.

    Jones broke the lines with his run, used his agility and evasion to avoid would-be tacklers, hit meaningful targets by foot, felt lively and as if he could make something happen whenever the ball hit the ground.

    In 22-minute quarters, the dangerous outside runner managed 15 disposals, six inside 50s and two goals. At just 178cm and 60kg, Jones is light and will take time to develop, but the talent and scope to improve is obvious. With hints of Jarman Impey, once developed physically, Jones could prove a similarly damaging player.

    Re: Welcome to the Western Bulldogs - Arthur Jones

    Here's a draft profile of him as well. Looking forward to hopefully seeing some footage of him

    https://central.rookieme.com/afl/player/arthur-jones/

    One of this year's surprise packets, flying Claremont wingman Arthur Jones was the final West Australian draft combine invitee. He stormed into draft contention with an eye-catching back end of the season, joining the Tigers' Colts finals campaign and also turning out with great success for his state Under 19 side.
    Jones enjoyed a productive season with Wesley College in the PSA competition too, showcasing his exciting mix of traits across multiple levels. Available in the open draft despite links to West Coast's NGA system, the speedy outside runner blends his flair with a high work rate but remains a raw type who can look to build his strength and consistency.
    STRENGTHS:
    + Speed/endurance mix
    + Athleticism
    + Work rate
    + Outside run
    + X-factor
    IMPROVEMENTS:
    - Contested game
    - Strength
    - Rawness/exposure

    Arthur Jones
    Claremont, WAFL / Mt. Barker FC
    State: Western Australia
    Height: 179cm
    Weight: 65g
    Date of Birth: 18/07/03

    Wingman who burst onto the scene with a standout performance in Western Australian's second match against South Australia having 16 disposals and kicking two goals to be among their best players in a hard-fought win in the AFL Grand Final curtain raiser at Optus Stadium. His speed and agility lit up the midfield after showing promise in 10 matches at Under 18s level averaging 12.6 disposals for Claremont who finished runners up this year. Part of the Krakouer clan, he really caught the eye with his competitive performance in the 2km test racing Corey Warner at the NAB AFL Draft Combine before recording a 6 minutes and 30 seconds to finish 2nd overall in Western Australia for endurance.
