Wayne Pivac’s side have started preparations for their visit to Dublin a week on Friday where they will play Dublin at the Aviva Stadium.

The game will be the first of the new Autumn Nations Cup tournament with Wales also set to face Georgia, England, and one other side as part of the competition.

“It’s always difficult wherever you play Ireland, home or away,” said Scarlets prop Jones.

“With no crowds it is much less of an advantage for the home team. Sometimes you might find it easier to play.

“Home advantage is much less of an advantage now.”

Jones continued: “International rugby is hard on the body and sometimes it’s good to get a weekend off to shake off some bumps.

“Some boys have put two big shifts in and need some time to recover.

“It’s always nice to have a week off in the middle to get ready for next week.”

Jones came off the bench to replace try-scorer Rhys Carre in the 14-10 Six Nations defeat by Scotland.

It was the 28-year-old’s 26th Test cap.

He added: “We know the threats Ireland bring. They’re a very forward orientated team.

“We’re excited to get back out there and this weekend is the one you didn’t really want off. ]

“After losing two games you want to get back out there and right the wrongs.”
