But the Ospreys back-row forward is far more concerned with Wales keeping their momentum going as a team, rather than receiving any personal accolades.
With Matthew Rees having suffered a World Cup-ending neck injury and current skipper Sam Warburton rested, Wales coach Warren Gatland has turned to Jones as his leader this weekend.
Jones will match Ieuan Evans' feat of captaining Wales 28 times, but he said: "I think these are the things you look back on when your rugby career is over and you are telling stories in your local pub.
"The most important thing is if we can get a result on the weekend, then it will keep the momentum going. There is a great buzz around the camp.
"The guys have put in an awful lot of hard work, and it's great as a player to see that coming through in a competitive environment.
"For those guys who were involved against England last Saturday (Wales won 19-9), I thought they were superb.
"The more competition we've got for places throughout the team, the better. The pressure is on, and the challenge is to come out on Saturday and have a good crack at it.
"It's not about going out there as 15 individuals to stake a claim for a place on the plane (to the World Cup). We've got to go out and perform in our units and collectively as a team."
Gatland, meanwhile, is braced to lose a third British and Irish Lions Test player for the World Cup opener against South Africa in Wellington on September 11.
But while Rees and centre Gavin Henson have disappeared from World Cup view because of injuries, Gatland is optimistic prop Gethin Jenkins will be involved in New Zealand.
Jenkins, who has won 76 caps, underwent toe surgery seven months ago and was then laid low by a calf problem.
He did not feature during last season's RBS 6 Nations Championship and has not appeared in a Test match since Wales lost at home to New Zealand almost nine months ago.
The 30-year-old loosehead, though, could make Wales' second World Cup pool game - a possible make-or-break appointment with Samoa in Hamilton.
Gatland will announce a 30-man World Cup squad next Monday, and while Jenkins is likely to be included, he is currently not available for match-day selection.
"Unfortunately, Gethin's calf is still not 100%, and that is a concern for us," said Gatland.
"We have had him rescanned, and there is some damage in the calf. I would say it probably rules him out of consideration for the South Africa game if selected (for the squad).
"We know what a quality player he is, and the hope is he will show signs of improvement and maybe we will be able to consider him for other games in the World Cup."
