Jones impressed by Gatland’s Wales job

Former Wales winger Mark Jones admits he is in awe of the job Warren Gatland is doing with the national side as he gets his troops firing on all cylinders at just the right time.

Wales were downed by England at the beginning of February but have since bounced back to defeat Scotland and France on the road, with at least nine British & Irish Lions starting in each clash.

They are now preparing to face Ireland, who are buoyant following victories over Italy, France and England – taking their winning run to ten games.

But despite the tough challenge waiting for Wales at the Millennium Stadium, Jones is adamant Gatland – who led the 2013 Lions to a series success Down Under – is the man for the job.

"Warren Gatland is very smart at getting his key players to peak at the right time and I think he's on the edge of doing it again,” he said.

"I think he'll keep the same team, or close to it, and deservedly so.

"He keeps players on their toes and you get the most out of every individual."
