Jones dreams of World Cup success

Wales captain Alun Wyn Jones is dreaming of winning the World Cup later this year but admits there is a lot of work to be done.

Wales have just wrapped up their first Grand Slam in seven years, and first Six Nations title since 2013, and with the World Cup fast approaching, talk has inevitably turned to the Japan showpiece.

Jones says it is natural for Wales to be now labelled as contenders, but claims some of it could be mind games from the opposition and Wales must stay focused on their preparations.

However, he insists it is ok for everyone to dream as long as they stay grounded at the same time.

"It is very easy for other teams to say we are going to be putting our hands up, to take the pressure off themselves," Jones said.

"People will pick apart the deficiencies we still have in our game. If we didn't have that, there would be no point in us being here.

"We are well aware of that, and Gats is always a coach who puts us under pressure and challenges us, irrelevant of games.

"Everyone dreams, we all dream, but there is work still to do. We are comfortable with the deficiencies we have, and we will work on them. We will see what happens."
