Ospreys and Wales lock, Alun Wyn Jones, is to succeed former Welsh captain Sam Warburton. Warburton made the decision to stand down after 5 years as the Welsh captain. He is expected to still be included in the Welsh squad when Rob Howley announces his Six Nations squad this week. Warburton captained the Lions to a series win in Australia back in 2013 but missed the final test due to injury. It makes perfect sense for Jones to take the role since he was the man who took the armband in that 3rd test back in 2013.
