Stephen Jones retired from playing as Wales’ most capped back having made 104 appearances between 1998-2011. In that time he won two Grand Slams (2005, 2008) and played at four World Cups (1999, 2003, 2007, 2011). He also captained his country eight times.

He finished as the second highest points scorer in Welsh rugby history behind Neil Jenkins with 917 and added a further 53 points from six Test appearances with the British & Irish Lions on the 2005 and 2009 tours.

Having won age grade honours at U16, U18, U19 and U21 levels, his club rugby began at Llanelli before the Scarlets took over as the regional side in 2003. He made more than 300 appearances and scored more than 2,791 points in a scarlet jersey for club and region, helping Llanelli to reach three Heineken Cup semi-finals in his two spells. In between, he moved to France to play for Clermont Auvergne for two years. He moved away again in 2012 to play under his former Wales team mate Dai Young at Wasps. It was while he was at Wasps that he moved into coaching, finally hanging up his boots at the end of the 2012-13 season.

In 2015, he once again returned to the Scarlets to become backs coach at his old stamping ground. He was named among the new Wales coaching team in December, 2018, and went out to the World Cup in Japan to take over from Rob Howley before the first game.
