Ian Donald Jones (born
17 April 1967in Whangarei) is a rugby unionplayer. He played 79 tests for the All Blacksand is the most capped lock and formed one of the most famous lock pairings in international rugby, often partnered with Robin Brookein the All Blacksfrom 1992 to 1998. What Jones lacked in size he more than made up for in skill, Jones was picked over physically intimidating locks such as Mark Cooksleywho was the tallest All Blackever. Jones made his All Black debut Saturday, 16 June 1990v Scotland at Dunedin. At the time he was 23 years, 60 days old.
Jones had an impressive start with a try on debut. Coincidentally six years later Jones played his 50th test, again at Carisbrook and again with Scotland the opponent. He scored at virtually the same exact spot in the stadium as he did six years before. Throughout his impressive career Jones was renowned for his ability in line-outs. Jones was the latest man to have topped a century (100) matches for the All Blacks.
In the Super 12 Jones made 38 appearances, often as captain, for the Chiefs between 1996 and 1999. Amazingly for a lock he once scored three tries in a match, against the Waratahs in 1996. In 1998 he was handed a lengthy suspension after a stomping incident involving the Hurricanes'
Jones started his career with Northland in 1988 as a string bean 20 year old lock who was tipped for big things back then. He picked up the nickname "Kamo" after his home town just north of Whangarei in New Zealand's Northland province.
In total Jones played 105 matches for the All Blacks including 79 tests. Jones was named captain for one match. Jones scored a total of 14 tries in All Blacks matches with nine of those in test matches.
