Welsh lock Jones to prove Lions fitness

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 20/05/2017

Wales captain Alun Wyn Jones will make his comeback from injury when the Ospreys face PRO12 play-off rivals Munster.

The Ospreys skipper has not played since suffering a shoulder injury while on Wales duty against France in the Six Nations nine weeks ago.

And his return is a boost for the British and Irish Lions ahead of this summer's New Zealand tour.

Lock Jones, who has won 110 Wales caps and played in six Lions Tests on the 2009 and 2013 tours, will be a key member of head coach Warren Gatland's Lions squad.

Jones will lead the Ospreys in Limerick on Saturday, with Munster's Ireland and Lions halfback Conor Murray also starting as he continues his return from injury.
