Jonathan Davies has paid tribute to Ryan Jones (above) after Wales's win over Canada.
Wales new cap Jonathan Davies has paid tribute to captain Ryan Jones after the tourists fought off stubborn opposition before beginning their summer tour with a hard fought triumph over Canada in Toronto.
The Scarlets centre performed well on his international debut but was quick to praise the Ospreys back rower who has had to overcome the disappointment of missing out on the British and Irish Lions tour of South Africa.
"Ryan Jones has been brilliant and has been great all week. His words of wisdom have been invaluable to the younger guys and he's told us what is expected when you wear the Welsh jersey."
The hard running Scarlets midfielder showed some deft touches with his handling skills and was his usual rock solid in defence and combined well with his fellow centre Andrew Bishop.
"It was great to play today. It was a tough game but I loved every moment of it. We knew from the game against them in the autumn that they were strong so we knew we were going to be in for a tough Test match."
Acting head coach Robin McBryde was satisfied with the win but admitted there were aspects of the game Wales will have to improve on before taking on USA next weekend.
"There were opportunites out there to score but some indecision right across the board meant we were unable to do so. We will be looking to improve before next week's match."
