Tighthead Jones has recovered from an elbow injury that has kept him out of the tournament so far and replaces Ospreys team mate Craig Mitchell, who dislocated his shoulder in the win over Ireland at the weekend.

"Craig has now had corrective surgery after dislocating his right shoulder. The operation went very well and we would expect him to be back playing within a 12-16 week period," said Wales national performance medical manager Prav Mathema.

Wales, who have a slim chance of winning the tournament if they win in Paris and Ireland beat England, will name their side on Wednesday.
