Lions Watch - Gethin Jenkins
Gethin Jenkins

The Cardiff Blues prop looks to be back to the kind of form which saw him make the Lions front row four years ago.

Jenkins was indefatigable around the pitch against England, playing a part in Leigh Halfpenny's try and displaying all the mobility and pace of a useful back-rower while keeping the scrum solid.

He got the better of his opposite number Phil Vickery and ran England flanker Joe Worsley close for the man-of-the-match award.

VERDICT:A certainty to tour South Africa and a warm favourite to wear the loose-head Test jersey.
