Shute Shield Premiership-winning backrower Maclean Jones has signed on the NSW Waratahs after training with NSW for 2017 and playing an impressive year with the Warringah Rats.
Jones, the former Australian U20s skipper, toured to South Africa with the Tahs in rounds two and three of the Vodafone Super Rugby earlier this year where he made his debut for NSW against the Lions in Johannesburg.
Head Coach Daryl Gibson says he looks forward to the young backrower making more of an impression on the group in 2018.
“We see enormous potential in Maclean,” he said. “He will continue to develop his game with us through his next year at NSW and he will have a chance to realise his true ability.
“Maclean has a lot of hard work ahead as he strives to compete for a place in the backrow.”
Keep an eye out for Maclean Jones this NRC season in the NSW Country Eagles, who will play the Greater Sydney Rams this Sunday, 3pm at TG Milner Field.
