Spotlight | Huw Jones
It’s been some start to the 2020/21 season for Huw Jones.
Having made his name as a centre capable of devastating defences worldwide, the 26-year-old has carved himself a new niche this year with his highly impressive displays at full-back.
The Scotland international currently sits in the top five in no fewer than five Guinness PRO14 attacking categories, with his fine early-season form being rewarded by supporters with the McCrea Financial Services Warrior of the Month award for October.
Tries against Connacht and the Ospreys stand out in his four outings to date this campaign, whilst his tally of 224 metres made sees him trail Zebre full-back Junior Laloifi by just a single metre.
Just as @connachtrugby take the lead @GlasgowWarriors instantly hit back 🥊
And in style too - take a bow @HRFJones 👏

Jones’ attacking threat has also seen him create opportunities for his team-mates; with five clean breaks, seven offloads and 11 defenders beaten, the full-back has been tearing it up across the competition.
The former Stormer will now look to transfer his form to the international arena, having been selected in Scotland’s squad for the inaugural Autumn Nations Cup.
