Alun Wyn Jones - too emotional to be captain?

New Wales captain Alun Wyn Jones won't be reining in his emotions when taking to the field in the upcoming Six Nations.

Warren Gatland reportedly once said the 31-year-old was 'too emotional' to lead the national side.

"You've got to sing the national anthem as if it's the last time you'll ever sing it," insisted the lock forward.

"Sport without emotion is just business, so you need a bit of that, otherwise you lose a bit of the magic."

Wales begin their Six Nations away to Italy on Sunday.
