Alun-Wyn Jones has a reputation as one of the best line-out lock forwards in Europe. Also capable of playing at blindside flanker, Wyn Jones' leadership qualities have seen him captain his club, the Ospreys, in recent years. He made his Wales debut in 2006 against Argentina and good form over the next few years was rewarded with selection for the British and Irish Lions tour of South Africa in 2009 where he started the first Test in the series. In the 2011 Six Nations Wyn Jones made more tackles than any other Wales player with 72. He now has over 50 caps for Wales and played in all four of their 2007 World Cup games, scoring two tries in the process.
