Wales captain Alan Win Jones on his way to the second operation

An NGO says two migrant boats have been rescued in the Mediterranean

Wales captain and second-seeded Alan Vin Jones has been ruled out of Wednesday’s all-out surgery with a shoulder injury following his side’s 54-16 defeat to Cardiff last month (54-16).

Jones, 36, is the most capped player in international rugby, having played 149 matches for his country and 12 matches for the British and Irish Lions, for a total of 161 Tests.

The second surgery is scheduled for two weeks and the player’s expected recovery time is not yet known, said Toby Booth, coach of Swansea – based Osprey.

New Zealand Welsh coach Wayne Pivak has already indicated that he will not be relying on Jones at the start of the Six Nations tournament against Ireland in Dublin on February 5.

On the other hand, Booth and Pivak are confident that Jones will be able to return to the pitch before the end of this season: “He is very confident, he has the right attitude and the right mindset, we will all say. Together, his recovery will be as fast as possible, ”Booth promised.

Ospreys Center three-quarterback Jonathan Davies took over as captain in the Welsh second match against the South African world champions this fall, followed by Ellis Jenkins against Fiji and Australia.

Two other key players injured in the fall missed Welsh matches: George North (knee) and Justin Tipurich (shoulder). They are expected to be reinstated early next year.
