World Cup Quarter Finals Preview

Wales prop Gethin Jenkins wants to continue his 13-year Test career beyond the Rugby World Cup.

Jenkins, who will be 35 next month, has already spoken with Wales head coach Warren Gatland about his international future.

The Cardiff Blues forward has won a record 118 caps for Wales, while he also featured in five Tests during the 2005 and 2009 British and Irish Lions tours of New Zealand and South Africa.

"I have had a quick chat with Warren about going on after the World Cup," Jenkins said on Tuesday. "I have no plans to quit just yet.

"I am just taking each game at a time to see how that goes, and I'm enjoying my rugby."

Jenkins was rested for last Saturday's Pool A decider against Australia, but he could now return to face quarterfinal opponents South Africa in four days' time at Twickenham.

And he has backed Wales to pick themselves up from that 15-6 defeat, a loss that sent them into the tournament's tougher half of the draw.

"The belief is there," Jenkins added. "We were disappointed we lost on the weekend, but the attention turned quickly towards the quarterfinals and making a statement this weekend.

"Four months of hard work will all come down to Saturday, and everyone is looking forward to trying to get the result."
