Jones to miss Wallabies Test following death of his father


Wales lock Alun Wyn Jones will miss Saturday's Test against Australia following the death of his father.

The Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) on Tuesday revealed the forward will not feature at the Principality Stadium after his father, Tim, passed away.

"The thoughts and prayers of the WRU and the National Squad are with Alun Wyn Jones & his family following the passing of his father Tim," the WRU tweeted.

"Due to this, Alun Wyn will not be considered for selection this weekend."

Jones may have captained Wales against the Wallabies after Sam Warburton was ruled out due to a neck injury.
