Biography

Luke Jones is the prototype modern forward. Tall enough to operate in the second row, but also athletic and skilful enough to line up anywhere in the back row.

Jones debuted for the Rebels as a blindside flanker, but in his next outing represented his Club as a lock. 

Jones was an integral member of the Rebels during the Club's debut season in 2011. His performances throughout the campaign earned him the Rebels' Rising Player of the Year Award, to add to his schoolboy and Australian Under 20s honours. 

Despite being one of the youngest members of the squad, Luke arrived in Victoria with Super Rugby experience. He played twice for the Western Force in 2010, a side he agreed to join while still at school. This made him the first forward in Australian rugby history to sign on professional terms as a schoolboy.

Jones began his Super Rugby season at number 6 in the Rebels season opener against the Waratahs.

Jones re-signed with the Rebels until the end of the 2016 Super Rugby season.

In September 2017, Jones signed a new two-year deal with Bordeaux-B├ęgles. After getting an early release from Bordeaux, he returned to Australia and began training with the Rebels for the 2019 season.

Jones was superb in his return home to Melbourne, with the powerful lock representing the Rebels 14 times. Jones was a force to be reckoned with in set pieces, with the second rower finishing third in the competition for line-out steals with 9.

Jones capped his return to Australian rugby by being selected in the Wallabies' The Rugby Championship side, earning his first Cap in 5 years against Argentina at Suncorp Stadium.
