Rees regains Wales captaincy

2:03 pm on 26 November 2010

The loose forward Ryan Jones has kept his place in the Wales starting lineup to play the All Blacks on Sunday morning, but he's lost the captaincy.

Jones led Wales against Fiji last week, conceding an injury-time penalty which gave Fiji a 16-all draw, after which coach Warren Gatland made it clear the rested hooker Matthew Rees would regain the captaincy against the All Blacks.

Jones has been moved to No.8 from blindside flanker this week instead of Jonathan Thomas in a Wales team showing nine changes and two positional switches from the one that failed to overcome Fiji.

Wales last six games have produced five losses and a draw.
