Alun Wyn Jones played on for over 70 minutes against Ireland last Saturday with knee ligament damage, captaining Wales to a Six Nations Grand Slam with a 25-7 win in Cardiff.
The lock went down after just 10 minutes in their Six Nations finale, but hobbled back to his feet after having his knee heavily bandaged by Wales’ medical team. He then went on to play an absolute stormer, making 19 tackles in a towering performance.
The Ospreys man was essentially playing on one leg for the majority of the brutal Test match, but battled on regardless. He now faces around a month or so out of action. His club issued the following injury update today, saying:
“Alun Wyn suffered knee ligament damage last weekend and is currently rehabbing.”
“He won’t travel to South Africa with the squad at the start of April but at this stage we haven’t ruled him out of the Judgment Day game against Cardiff Blues.”
Jones was this morning named Six Nations Player of the Championship after an incredible tournament.
