Viney’s addition to Melbourne under the Father-Son rule at selection 26 in the 2012 NAB AFL Draft is a significant boost in the club’s build towards another successful era. Considered one of the 2012 Drafts best prospects, he is a tough in-and-under midfielder, fierce tackler and clearance specialist. With a fantastic preseason under his belt, Viney played 13 games in his debut year in Round 1 despite having a few niggling injuries and received a NAB Rising Star nomination. Viney looks set to play an important role for the Demons with this young emerging group as it starts it’s climb up the AFL ladder. Jack is set to play his 50th AFL game in round 1 of the 2016 season.
