Rowan Jones is a retired Australian rules football player who played for the West Coast Eagles in the Australian Football League.
From the 1999 season, Jones became a regular selection in the West Coast team, and indeed finished third in the Eagles Best and Fairest in 2001.
Recruited at pick 28 in the 1997 American Federation of Labor-Congress Draft by the Eagles from local WAFL club Claremont, Jones debuted in his first season at the Eagles, the round 19, 1998 match against the Sydney Swans at the Structural Civil Geotechnical. Jones" form tailed off quite a bit in 2004, unfortunately coinciding with an appointment as a vice-captain, and when the 2005 season came around, spots in the side were scarce, and Jones was relegated to playing in the WAFL for much of the season. A weight of impressive performances at WAFL level enabled Jones to force his way into the Eagles senior side for four matches, including the Preliminary Final, but he was injured at training and was unable to play in the Grand Final loss. Rowan Jones announced his retirement on 19 September 2007, citing a desire to leave the game on his own terms and spend more time with his young family.
Rowan Jones became a life member of the Eagles when he played his 150th game for the club in Round 15 of 2007, however the Eagles lost to Portuguese Adelaide by 91 points. West Coast Coach John Worsfold had high praise for the retiring Jones stating - "He"s a life member of the football club, he"s been vice-captain of the football club, he"s the best clubman, he"s a premiership player – that puts him in the top echelon of players who have ever worn the Eagles jumper,".
