Did Sydney undervalue Zak Jones?

Brownlow Medallist Gerard Healy believes Sydney undervalued Zak Jones after they traded the speedster to St Kilda.

Jones sealed his move to the Saints on deadline day of the trade period with the Swans receiving picks 32, 76 and Fremantle’s future third-round pick in exchange.

“Sydney has got a slow midfield. They’ve got a midfield that needs development and they let Zak Jones out of the club for pick 32,” Healy told Sportsday.

“I don’t think they valued Zak Jones. I think the Saints have done particularly well in getting him.”

“That’s what good coaching, good trading is. See something that one club doesn’t value and turn it into a gem.”

Jones was one of five players to land at Moorabbin joining the likes of Brad Hill, Paddy Ryder, Dougal Howard and Dan Butler in the red, white and black for 2020.

The 24-year-old played 90 games for Sydney across six years and averaged 22.4 disposals last season.
