Wales lock Alun-Wyn Jones began his career with Swansea in 2005, picking up the award for Young Player of the Season at the end of the 2005/6 Welsh Premiership season. Jones soon graduated into the Ospreys regional side, playing 15 games in his first season with the region.

Jones exhibits all of the attributes for a world class lock, at 6'6" and over 18 stone he is hugely powerful, but also athletic and immensely passionate. His international debut came on the blindside flank against Argentina on Wales' summer tour in 2006.

He helped Wales to a famous victory at Twickenham, but sustained an injury that ruled him out of the subsequent ties against Scotland and Italy.

Selected for the 2009 Lions tour of South Africa and made the XV for the first Test defeat in Durban. He was dropped to the bench after the first Test defeat and made two replacement appearances in the remaining Tests.
