Jenkins boost for Wales

Date published: November 22 2016

Wales have been handed a big boost after it was confirmed loosehead prop Gethin Jenkins would be fit to face South Africa on Saturday.

The 35-year-old, who suffered a shoulder injury against Argentina a fortnight ago, missed last weekend’s victory over Japan in Cardiff.

But according to Wales skills coach Neil Jenkins, the prop can now return.

“Gethin’s trained today, he is a smart operator,” he told BBC Sport Wales.

“He’s not getting any younger, but he certainly knows what it’s all about to play at this level and he looks in good shape.”
