Alun-Wyn Jones has agreed new terms with the Ospreys

Jones, a mainstay of the Wales team who captained the British and Irish Lions in their Test series-clinching victory over Australia in Sydney last summer, has agreed new terms until after the 2015 World Cup, the Ospreys announced.

Jones' decision comes against a backdrop of political unrest between Wales' four professional regions and the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU), and bucks the trend of top players moving abroad which continued on Thursday when full-back Leigh Halfpenny agreed a lucrative deal with reigning European champions Toulon.
