Gethin Jenkins (born 17 November 1980) is a Wales and British Lions international rugby union player, currently playing for Cardiff Blues. On 30 November 2013 versus Australia he became the most capped forward for Wales, surpassing Martyn Williams record of 100 caps.
He become the ninth Welshman to win a Heineken Cup with Toulon. Jenkins is only the second Welsh player (along with Rob Howley) to win both European cups, after winning the Amlin Challenge Cup in 2010 with the Cardiff Blues and the Heineken Cup with Toulon in 2013.
In November 2007 he was asked to captain his country against South Africa by Welsh temporary coach Nigel Davies. His reign as captain would last just one game as in December Wales hired Warren Gatland as coach who gave the captaincy to Ryan Jones. However Jenkins kept his place in the squad solidifying himself as number one choice for the #1 jersey.
Jenkins captained Wales against Australia on 28 November 2009 following the withdrawal of regular captain Ryan Jones from the squad due to injury.
