3. This story from Adam Jones
Jones figured alongside Alun Wyn for the Ospreys and for Wales.
In his book, Bomb: My Autobiography, he tells a revealing story which contradicts the view of Jones as being gruff and unapproachable, with little time for humour.
“To most rugby fans and journalists, he’s a total enigma, but I’d defend him to the hilt,” writes the ex-Wales and Ospreys prop.
“He’s my best mate and I was best man at his wedding. Anyone who thinks he’s a psychopath and has no affectionate side just needs to see him with my daughter Isla.
“He’s the soppiest bloke on earth in the company of youngsters.
“Isla’s a massive Toy Story fan and for her third birthday he turned up dressed as Buzz Lightyear. He hadn’t told us he was going to do it — he just took it upon himself because he knew how much she’d love it. And he was right. She was absolutely made up.”
Jones studied part-time for a degree in law at Swansea University, graduating on 21 July 2010
