« I wish Alun Wyn Jones the best this weekend, for breaking the world record for most capped player, » Weir said

« Best success for him and I’m sure there will be a lot more caps he gets »

He will play his 149th test match and thus become the most capped international player of all time, eclipsing a record previously held by Richie McCaw

This is a staggering achievement for the 35-year-old, especially given the position he plays and the chilling nature of it

« You are as good as your next as your last », the Welsh skipper said yesterday

« I was lucky enough to have the opportunity. I ultimately don’t feel worthy of mention in the same sentence of some of these people you refer to

« I’m just aware of who I’m doing it for what I’m doing it for and where I’m from and will treat Saturday in the same vein »

He added: « [It’s] slightly uncomfortable There are a few guys in this Zoom room who have known me for a while and know that I don’t particularly like him

« To be honest it looks like a side-show I want to go out and play, get the performance we need

« I am extremely flattered, but at the end of the day these are words and the game will continue next week and that will be the main focus

« We need to deal with Saturday first, but we’ll see where the emotions are after »

This is the last Six Nations 2020 game for these two in what is essentially a dead rubber match

Neither side can influence what happens later this afternoon when Ireland, England and France are all chasing the title

But it’s a huge game for the Wales management, who are currently four games without a win

Stay tuned for all the set-up throughout the day and live updates from the 2:15 p.m. kickoff
