He was suspended for six matches in 2016 for intentionally striking West Coast's Andrew Gaff, leaving Gaff unconscious for two minutes.[4] After his suspension expired, Jonas did not play again that season due to a hamstring injury. In 2018, he said that "it felt like he was suspended for half a year".[5][6]

Jonas was appointee co-captain alongside teammate Ollie Wines in the 2019 season. The following year he assumed sole responsibility for the captaincy, with Wines made vice-captain.[7]
