Wales captain Alun Wyn Jones will make a decision on his playing career once the Six Nations is over, his club coach has revealed.
Jones’ current contract with Wales and the Ospreys is up in the summer with the world’s most capped player set to turn 36 in September.
Wales are currently top of the Six Nations having won their opening three games against Ireland, Scotland and England, winning a Triple Crown in the process, and Jones is currently focused on leading his side to a potential second Grand Slam in three years before making any decisions.
The towering is also being tipped to captain the Lions this summer so perhaps he might see it as he’s still got plenty left in him – or the perfect swansong could be falling into place.
Ospreys head coach Toby Booth said discussions about the next step will not be held until after Wales’ final scheduled tournament match against France in Paris this month.
“It’s something we’re delighted to entertain with Al, he wants to get the Six Nations out of the way,” said Booth.
“I’m sure those conversations are being had centrally with Wales, and we’re inputting into that but we’ll see where those conversations go after the Six Nations.
“Al’s a quality player, there are very few players can come back off a medium-term injury ahead of time and do well at international level.
“He’s a quality individual, we’re very proud to see him perform well for Wales and he’s desperate to play some more for the Ospreys as well so it’s a win-win for everybody.”
