Mark Jones made his debut for Warrington on 20th August 1995 and played his final game on 26th August 1996.
He made 20 starts, 18 sub appearances and scored two tries.
I remember him as being somewhere between decent and average.
I never realised that was his debut - I was at that game and I've still got the programme. Warrington v London at Wilderspool. It was London Broncos first game after their elevation to the top division for Super League in what was the Centenary Championship. Alan Langers brother Kevin was playing for the Broncos. I seem to remember Warrington won pretty easily.
I'll quote the editor of the match programme from that game who was talking about the pre season Locker Cup match against Wigan - "Pack dominance has very much been a feature of the modern game and Wire fans have long awaited more power in this area. The buzzes created by Mark Jones and Dave King when making some surging runs give an early indication that much needed support in the boiler house has well and truly arrived." Ever the optimists, programme writers...
