Wales skipper Alun Wyn-Jones is out for six weeks after he was forced onto the bench on Saturday in their game against France.

Jones left the field of play with a shoulder injury in Wales’ defeat to France in Paris. Jones took over the captaincy spot for this years Six Nations after Sam Warburton stepped down to work on his overall game, and he did not let down, leading Wales to victories over Italy and an Ireland side who looked strong as they knocked England off their unbeaten run.

Ospreys will not be happy to hear the result of his medical assessment, as the Ospreys came out stating that Jones will undergo, “an initial six week period of rehabilitation” leaving him out of their clash against fellow title contenders Leinster on the 8th of April.

Does this dent Jones’ chance of getting a Lions place?
