In 2005 Jones was selected for the British and Irish Lions tour to New Zealand. Although Jones was the on-form fly-half, the Head Coach, Sir Clive Woodward selected the barely match fit Jonny Wilkinson ahead of him. Many people in the Rugby world saw this as the wrong decision and many believed that Jonny Wilkinson should not even tour, let alone play, as at the time he had only recently recovered from a serious injury. 2005 (MMV) was a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

In October of 2006 head coach Gareth Jenkins named Jones as captain to lead Wales through to the 2007 World Cup. On his appointment of Jones, Jenkins said "Stephen has all the attributes to make a magnificent captain of his country. He has the respect and regard of his players, leadership qualities that are evident for all to see and the talent and ability to lead from the front at game time".[1] Gareth Jenkins (born 11 September 1951) is a Welsh rugby union coach. ...


While regarded as one of the best players in the world of his position, Jones has been criticised for his sometimes erratic kicking and reasonably short kicking ditance.
