Jones is enjoying his role as Wales interim backs coach
Former Wales wing Mark Jones admits he is enjoying his new role as the national team's backs coach.
With Warren Gatland on British & Irish Lions duty and Rob Howley stepping up to become Wales interim head coach, Jones was drafted into the international set-up.
The Scarlets backs coach has taken on the same role with Wales and is enjoying the experience.
"The last time I put this kit on I was going out through the door with crutches underneath my arms," said Jones, who won 47 caps for Wales.
"It's been a new experience, but a very enjoyable one so far. It's been a chance to work with players from other regions, in a different environment.
"It's been a good learning experience for me and it's given me the opportunity to sit down with players and highlight a few things in their games that they might find useful, or just kick some new ideas around in a very well- organised and established training regime.
"It's just a case of me questioning a few things and instigating thought around certain areas.
"It's about me learning as well. It's been good so far. It's when the games start and the winning and losing happens that you find out a lot more about players."
Wales' back-line failed to fire in the autumn, scoring just three tries and only one from a backs move.
But Jones is confident Wales can rediscover the attacking prowess that saw them march to the 2012 RBS 6 Nations Grand Slam.
"The boys didn't attack as they would have liked in the autumn," added Jones.
"There's no hiding from that. But prior to that Wales had played some great rugby.
"It's definitely something Rob is keen to return to, that attacking brand of rugby, challenging defences all the time.
"We have some great options to do that, and there's been a focus on trying to get back to that attractive, effective type of rugby."
As the countdown continues for RWC2015, Tournament Chief Executive Debbie Jevans visited the Millennium Stadium to discuss preparations for the eight matches and reveal the positive news that 100,000 tickets for games at the home of Welsh rugby have sold in the last seven days.
Jason Harries is targeting a first win on the World Series circuit this season with Wales. The series returns to action this weekend in Dubai where Harries is part of a team hoping to build from its efforts in round one in October.
Wales skipper Jevon Groves says his side have addressed a few points from Gold Coast and aim to 'hit the ground running' in the next two rounds of the World Series, kicking off with this weekend in Dubai before heading off to South Africa next week.
Wales Sevens manager Steff Thomas is hopeful his side can build from a quarter-final spot in the opening round of the World Series in Australia when his side take part in the forthcoming double header in Dubai and South Africa.
