Having arrived at Alberton as a skinny small defender, Byrne-Jones developed into a versatile backman whose running capacity is an asset. Known as 'Hank' for his aggressive mindset on the field - a reference to Jim Carrey's split personality in Me, Myself and Irene - he is never one to shirk a contest. He is fast across the field and has the discipline to shut down an opponent.

TIMELINE

2014

Byrne-Jones was a regular in the Magpies side that made it all the way to the SANFL Grand Final, with the teenager gaining valuable experience along the way. Byrne-Jones had a standout game against South Adelaide in the preliminary final, racking up 22 disposals and 6 inside 50s.

2015

Byrne-Jones played 19 out of a possible 20 games for the Magpies in 2015. He was a regular across half-back while also spending time pushing up into the midfield. His development continued to progress under the tutelage of Garry Hocking and 2016 looms as a year Byrne-Jones will be looking to make his mark at AFL level.

2016

One of the Power's most promising players, Byrne-Jones debuted in Round 3 and was an instant hit. Earned an AFL Rising Star nomination in Round 10 against Melbourne and finished the season playing 20 games.

2017

Having played every game in 2017, Darcy Byrne-Jones is becoming a fixture down back for the Power. The running defender averaged 16 disposals in another promising year for the 22-year-old.

2018

Byrne-Jones played all but one game for the Power in 2018, where he averaged 17 touches, four marks and three tackles a game.
