Wales captain Alun Wyn Jones is set to equal the Test appearance world record after being named on Thursday to skipper his side away to France this weekend.

The lock will make his 148th international appearance (including nine for the British and Irish Lions) in Paris on Saturday to draw level with New Zealand's Richie McCaw.

This match will serve as a warm-up for both sides' delayed Six Nations finales, with Wales welcoming Scotland to Llanelli next weekend and France facing Ireland in fixtures postponed by several months due to the coronavirus pandemic.
