Alun Wyn Jones says that Wales have got “a job to get on with” against Scotland after a week dominated by regional rugby politics.

Warren Gatland’s men will be 80 minutes away from the Six Nations title and a Grand Slam if they beat Scotland at Murrayfield this afternoon (kick-off 2.15pm).

However, preparations for Edinburgh were hindered by the fall-out from Project Reset, with Jones’ Ospreys at the heart of the debate over the future of the professional game.

On Monday players were told that they were set to merge with western rivals the Scarlets because of financial concerns but the plan was killed off a day later.

The Test squad met with Welsh Rugby Union chief executive Martyn Phillips to discuss the proposal before the Ospreys pulled out - and subsequently made accusations of a “stitch-up” in a fiery press statement - but now have to focus on Scotland.

“For us, it’s not a case of carry on regardless, it’s a case of being sympathetic to the situation,” Wales captain Jones said before the squad went through their final team run at Murrayfield.

“Obviously, we want a few more answers after the Six Nations, but we’ve got a job to get on with.”

Talks at Wales’ Professional Rugby Board level now appear to be deadlocked and considerable uncertainty remains.

Jones added: “Whatever career you are in, you always have other distractions.

“Ultimately, we are professional rugby people and we focus on the rugby. That’s the easy bit. We are not politicians, so we don’t have to delve too much into that.”

Jones says he hopes the off-the-field turmoil can “galvanise” the Wales team against Scotland.

“We’ve got a lot of experienced players in this team and we can’t forget that,” said Jones.

“It’s been nice to be able to have the outlet that is rugby and also have an away game which has been a blessing in the last week.

“We’ve built through the week and we’ve got a game which is the job we face.

“We’re enjoying each other’s company and a big thing for us is being part of a squad that’s operating well but maybe not at its full potential. It’s a special place to be.”

Wales are hunting a 13th Test win on the spin and have won 12 of their last 13 meetings with the Scots.

However, two years ago they were given a 29-13 hammering.

Jones said: “They’re building a massive reputation about how unwelcoming it can be here, but as a player you want to revel in that and that’s what we’ll do.

“We’ve got a bad memory of the last time we were up here. We have got to play the situation and the environment on the day and not get too bogged down by historic events or the future.”
