Alun Wyn Jones will equal the world record for most international rugby union appearances in Saturday's clash against Scotland.

Jones' 148th Test, a tally that includes nine for the British and Irish Lions, matches the figure set by New Zealand's World Cup-winning captain Richie McCaw between 2001 and 2015.
