Warrington’s World Cup heroes – Mark Jones

This Is Cheshire: Mark Jones kitted out for the centenary Rugby League World Cup Mark Jones kitted out for the centenary Rugby League World Cup

MARK Jones enjoyed one win and suffered one defeat with Wales in matches during the centenary World Cup in 1995.

He was alongside fellow Warrington players Allan Bateman, Jonathan Davies, Kevin Ellis and Iestyn Harris as Wales opened their campaign with a 28-6 defeat of France at Ninian Park, Cardiff, and had the same company as the Dragons lost 25-10 to England in the semi finals at Old Trafford.

Jones made 15 appearances for the Welsh rugby union team while with Neath before turning to the 13-a-side code with Hull in 1990.

He joined Warrington for their last season of winter rugby and first season of Super League, scoring two tries in 38 appearances, before being sold to rugby union club Ebbw Vale for a nominal fee in September, 1996.
