9. Gethin Jenkins – 52 Appearances for Wales (to date)
A Welsh prop forward whose total Six Nations appearances could well be increased yet further in the coming months and years, Gethin Jenkins already holds the record as Wales’ most capped rugby player ever and the record as the most capped prop forward in the entire history of the game.
Beginning his international career back in 2002, to date Jenkins has a total of 199 caps for Wales and an additional five for the British and Irish Lions. A full 52 of those Welsh caps came in various Six Nations campaigns and the talented prop is one of very few Welsh players to have been a part of three Six Nations Grand Slams.
