2.8: Beating the Bulldogs, Collingwood coming... ft. Aussie Jones
AFL 2020 Round 2 is finally in the books - 84 days after the conclusion of Round 1 - and the Saints are now on the board with a win! The St Kilda Football Club delivered a withering burst of direct, beautiful football to dominate the Western Bulldogs after quarter time and now look forward to Round 3 against Collingwood, who are coming off a draw in a disappointing game against the Tigers. The boys look back at the best moments of the Saints 39-point victory and keep an eye on the upcoming Magpies clash.
He was supremely skilled on both sides of the body, and had a career full of memorable moments. This week 2x All Australian wingman/half-back, Aussie Jones, joins Unpluggered to chat about his 226 games in red, white and black, from draft year in 1994 to a goal for the ages in the 1997 Grand Final, and a revitalised career under Grant Thomas in 2004/05, before an early retirement at the age of 29.
