Wales coach Warren Gatland has hailed Gethin Jenkins as a 'sensational player' and a 'great servant of Welsh rugby' ahead of the player's 100th appearance on Saturday.

"He had a phenomenal game last week (against South Africa). I think he is a sensational player," Gatland said of the 32-year-old.

"He has dropped four or five kgs and he is looking really fit at the moment. He has been training hard.

"For me, it is a fantastic milestone for someone who has been a great servant of Welsh rugby.

"I hope we can go out there on Saturday and give a performance that reflects his contribution to Welsh rugby in that we play well and win."
