Alun Wyn Jones will appear in a Welsh record 135th Test when he captains the team in Sunday’s World Cup warm-up against England at Twickenham.

The 33-year-old will make his 126th appearance for Wales, having also won nine British and Irish Lions caps.

He beats the mark set by prop Gethin Jenkins, who made 129 appearances for Wales and played in five Lions Tests.

Lock Jones leads an experienced squad, as coach Warren Gatland sticks largely with a tried and tested starting XV.
