Wales captain Alun Wyn Jones is set to make history for his country this weekend.

The towering lock is set to become the first Welshman in history to have started 100 times for his country, bringing his total caps up to 109.

He is the second most capped Wales player of all-time behind Gethin Jenkins who has 124 to his name, but just 93 of those were starts.

A phenomenal achievement for the Ospreys lock who will be hoping his side can build on their huge win over Ireland by claiming a scalp over the French on Saturday.

Should Ireland lose tomorrow and Wales win, they will slip into the 4th place in the World Rankings, and the top seeding band. An incredible achievement when you consider Wales were close to dropping out of the top 8 only a few weeks back.
