Adam Jones wins a place on his second Lions tour having won his fourth RBS 6 Nations title earlier this year.
The 32-year-old reaffirmed his position as one of the best tighthead props in the world as he joined Gethin Jenkins, Ryan Jones and the legendary trio of Gareth Edwards, Gerald Davies and JPR Williams in a select group of Welshman to have won the Grand Slam three times.
He started his domestic career at Neath, made his Wales debut against England in 2003 and has and has two international tries to his name, against Scotland in 2004 and England in 2010.
A constant member of Wales' 2005 Grand Slam winning team, Jones was selected for his second successive World Cup in 2007, making two appearances, against Canada in Nantes and against Australia at the Millennium Stadium.
In 2008, Jones featured in four matches of the Grand Slam-winning campaign, against England, Scotland, Ireland and France.
He was then among 13 Welsh players initially selected for the 2009 Lions tour of South Africa.
After shoring up the Lions' scrum as a replacement in the first Test, Jones started the second international alongside fellow countrymen Jenkins and Matthew Rees.
This was the first time an all-Welsh front row was selected for a Lions Test match since Billy Williams, Bryn Meredith and Courtney Meredith achieved the same feat in 1955.
Jones missed the final international in Johannesburg, however, having been forced home after the heart-breaking 28-25 second Test defeat in Pretoria after dislocating his right shoulder.
