No-nonsense lock Jones prepares for his first Lions tour and is integral to the tourists' hopes of victory.
No-nonsense lock Jones prepares to embark on his first Lions tour and is another player integral to the tourists' hopes of victory.
The 6ft, 6in powerhouse has the ability to win a match single handily with his prowess both in the set-piece and with ball in hand.
The 23-year-old helped inspire Wales to Grand Slam glory in 2008 and his leadership skills were rewarded when he was named captain against Italy in Rome later in the year.
The battle of the locks in South Africa one to saviour, and Jones will hope his previous experience of playing against Victor Matfield and co last year will stand him in good stead.
