"Playing in a World Cup is the ultimate honour for a player and this autumn will be a good chance for players to stake their claim for a place in the Six Nations squad and for the world cup, which only comes round once every four years," said Jenkins, who sealed his legendary status in the game on the successful 1997 Lions tour of South Africa and was the first player to breach the 1,000 points barrier.
"We did reasonably well in the summer against the big nations, we should have beaten South Africa before leaving for New Zealand and we performed reasonably well against the Tri Nations champions, despite falling away in the first Test.
"But performance is key for us this November. We would like to win every game and it's the same this time - we will go into every game wanting, and expecting to win.
"We have a tough challenge in Fiji but we will be judging ourselves on our performances against the three southern hemisphere sides and there are games we can win."
Jenkins is expecting a new style of rugby from the Wallabies and the All Blacks in particular from that seen at the Millennium Stadium as recently as last November.
He believes both sides have adapted well to the new law directives and is also expecting the Springboks to bounce back from indifferent form in the Tri Nations.
"Australia are very similar to the All Blacks at the moment. There is very little kicking in their game - although they have Quade Cooper and Matt Giteau who are more than capable of controlling the game. They are a very tough side but a good challenge to start our autumn series," said Jenkins.
"New Zealand are unbeaten this year, that says it all. They had a fairly quiet year last year but they have rediscovered their best form this season.
"They look lean and fit, there is a lot less kicking in their game now following the new law directives - they just keep hold of the ball until they get turned over.
"They're just a fantastic side and are going to be a tough side in the autumn.
"South Africa may have had a poor season by their standards, after winning the Tri Nations and beating the Lions last year, but we've only beaten them once in a hundred years so these are the type of games we'd like to do well in and win.
"Fiji are supposedly the 'easier' game of the series but I'm sure they'll be nothing of the sort - Samoa showed us that at the same time last season.
"After losing to Fiji in the 2007 world cup and with Fiji in our pool again at the 2011 Rugby World Cup, it would be important to get a win over them."
