Jenkins fit for Wales' Rugby World Cup warmups

Gethin Jenkins has recovered from foot surgery in time for Wales' warmup matches for the Rugby World Cup.
The Cardiff Blues loosehead prop missed the Six Nations because of an injury that was originally expected to keep him out for 10 weeks.
But he will be available to add to his 76 internationals against England and Argentina next month.
Jenkins says he should be fresh for the Sept. 9-Oct. 23 World Cup in New Zealand and that "if there is ever a good time to make your comeback, it's probably now."
Wales is at England on Aug. 6 and hosts the same opponent a week later. It then hosts Argentina on Aug. 20.
Wales plays Fiji, Namibia, Samoa and defending champion South Africa in Pool D at the World Cup in New Zealand.
