Alun Wyn Jones reached his tenth test in a row wearing the British & Irish Lion jerseys. Wales’ second row continues to make international rugby history and, after beating South Africa on Saturday, became the first player to achieve this mark in the era of professional rugby.
It was a special game for the captain of the European team. Miraculously recovered from his elbow injury, the player with the most appearances in international rugby made it to ten games with the British team’s shirt, a privilege reserved only for a few, although all from the amateur era.
Following the win over the Springboks in South Africa, Wyn Jones joined the select group of Gareth Edwards (10), Graham Price (12), Mike Gibson (12), Dickie Jeeps (13) and Willie John McBride (17).
