Jones will captain Wales against Ireland in the Six Nations today but will have a black eye following an altercation, according to reports emerging

Feb 7, 2021

Wales captain Alun Wyn Jones was punched by team-mate Jake Ball during training this week, it has been claimed.
MailOnline report Jones will sport a black eye when Wales take the field against Ireland today after the altercation.
The WRU have downplayed the incident behind the scenes after a less than ideal week following the Josh Adams controversy.
Adams was suspended from the squad on Wednesday for breaking national lockdown rules and team protocols by attending a gender reveal party at a relative’s home.
Jones will captain the side against Ireland in the Six Nations opener, while Ball is not involved in the squad at all. It will be Ball’s final campaign with Wales before he moves to Australia to be with his family.

Speaking about the Adams incident this week, Jones said: “We all realised coming into camp in the Nations Cup there were going to be a lot of firsts. This is just another first and in fairness to Josh he held his hands up and was accountable. Now we move on.
“We had 700 Tests in the Nations Cup which were all negative and weve continued in the same vein.
“When Josh comes back Ill support him and Ill expect him to let his rugby do the talking.”
