Ceri Jones will summon all his experience on what for him is the foreign side of the scrum when he packs down for Wales against Australia at Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium on Saturday.

The 29-year-old, who usually packs down at loosehead prop for Harlequins, will take Adam Jones’ number three jersey after he was ruled out by a torn calf muscle.

Gareth Jenkins’ side go in search of revenge following their agonising 29-23 defeat in Sydney last weekend.

Jones won his first cap as a replacement for Iestyn Thomas at Telstra Stadium and is now poised to start his first game for Wales with Newport-Gwent Dragon Jamie Corsi, 19, also out of the equation with a back injury.

“I’m over the moon at the opportunity more than anything. I feel for the boys who have gone down with injury and I’m just looking forward to this opportunity,” said Jones.

“It’s a great chance for me to show what I can do. I played at tight-head prop in the Heineken Cup more than two years ago, against Munster and Castres, so I’ve had some experience at a reasonably high level.

“I’m just looking forward to getting out there and getting involved and enjoying it.”
