Jones focused on matter in hand

Alun Wyn Jones insists he’s fully focused on finishing the season on a high with the Ospreys, rather than Wales’ summer tour to South Africa.

Jones, who captained the British & Irish Lions in their crucial third Test victory over Australia last summer, has played in four of Wales’ five international matches this year but will now turn his attentions to the Ospreys.

Wales suffered defeats to England and Ireland and that prompted suggestions some senior players should be rested for the Springboks series.

But Jones is not thinking that far ahead.

"I've got rugby to do here [the Ospreys] first," he said.

"I've got to make sure I'm fit here, that I can do the job here. I'm not looking forward to the summer.

"Hopefully we can get through the play-offs. But like I said at the weekend it's a dangerous thing, you end up playing a lot of rugby and you go out there potentially tired.

"But then you stop for four weeks, it's a lot harder to get going.

"We'll see what happens but ultimately my focus is here for the next few weeks."
