The 36-year-old Jones has played just four matches this year after suffering a shoulder injury against the All Blacks in October last year.

Johannesburg – The British and Irish Lions captain Alun Wyn Jones will be in the Wales squad named later on Wednesday to tour South Africa in July but he will be a squad member-only, with flyhalf Dan Biggar leading the team.

This is according to Wales Online, who have their finger on the pulse of Welsh rugby, and the website further points out that giant winger George North is to be recalled while there will be a debut on the cards for Leicester Tigers flank Tommy Reffell in an otherwise highly experienced squad.

The 36-year-old Jones has played just four matches this year after suffering a shoulder injury against the All Blacks in October last year.

One of the games he did play was in this year’s final Six Nations game between Wales and Italy which saw his 150th Test cap celebrations stopped in their tracks by the victorious Italians.
