Wales prop Adam Jones couldn't hide his excitement when speaking about the prospect of playing with former All Blacks lock Brad Thorn for the Barbarians.

When asked who he was looking forward to play with for the Baa-baas, in their upcoming games against England and Ireland, Jones replied: "I don't want to come across too much as a fan but I think probably Brad Thorn.

"His record speaks for itself."

Thorn is one of the most decorated players in the game, having won a World Cup with the All Blacks (2011) as well as the Heineken Cup with Leinster (2012), and a Super Rugby title with the Crusaders (2008).

And during his time as a rugby league player the 40-year-old also won three NRL titles with the Brisbane Broncos and two State of Origins with Queensland.

"If I get the chance to have him shove his hand between my legs in the scrum, well, that will be perfect!" added Jones.

Thorn will retires from the game after his stint with the Baa-baas to take up a coaching role with the Reds and Jones leaves the Cardiff Blues to join Harlequins in the Aviva Premiership next season.
