Lions’ Alun Wyn Jones expects Australian ‘sledging’

Lock Alun Wyn Jones says the British and Irish Lions are prepared for verbal taunts during the tour of Australia and says sledging is "part and parcel" of the game.

The Wales and Ospreys forward starts for the Lions against Western Force in Perth on Wednesday.

Fellow Wales lock Ian Evans will make his Lions debut and Jones says his team-mate is fast gaining a reputation as the squad's practical joker.
