Episode 7: Nathan Jones — Melbourne

Melbourne Demons co-captain Nathan Jones has had a truly unique AFL journey. In the midst of a finals drought spanning more than a decade, Jones toughed out the poor results and is now at the helm of Melbourne’s resurgence.

In this episode of Captain’s Call, Jones talks about his career to date and Melbourne’s struggles (1:39), as well as his personal journey from co-captain to solo captain and back again (10:51). From that unusual path, Jones discusses the lessons he has learned along the way (32:08) and the areas that he still needs to improve (37:50). And, on a lighter note, he tells the stories of his nickname “Chunk,” a wrestling match against Bernie Vince (66:42), and his unique relationship with his brother, Zak (70:47).
