Alun Wyn Jones future to be decided post Six Nations

Wales captain Alun Wyn Jones will sort out his future after the Six Nations with his current contract with the Welsh Rugby Union and Ospreys finishes at the end of the 2020-21 season.

Wales claimed a Triple Crown in the latest round of the Six Nations beating England with Alun Wyn Jones continuing to perform as the most capped test player of all time. So far in the Six Nations, Jones has made more tackles than any other player while he continues to thrive with ball in hand.

Ospreys head coach Toby Booth says that the region and the Welsh Rugby Union would discuss Jones' future after Wales' final match in the Six Nations against France.


"It's something we're delighted to entertain with Al, he wants to get the Six Nations out of the way," said Booth.

 


"I'm sure those conversations are being had centrally with Wales, and we're inputting into that but we'll see where those conversations go after the Six Nations."

 

Jones last appeared for the region in October 2020 against Ulster, after sustaining a knee injury in the Autumn Nations Cup against Italy in December 2020, Jones returned for the opening Six Nations match against Ireland in February 2021.

"Al's a quality player, there's very few players can come back off a medium-term injury ahead of time and do well at international level," added Booth.

"He's a quality individual, we're very proud to see him perform well for Wales and he's desperate to play some more for the Ospreys as well so it's a win-win for everybody."

 

Jones was linked with a number of clubs across Europe the last time his contract was expiring but he opted to remain with the Ospreys.
