And the front-rower is hopeful his decision will help him bring up 100 caps in the red of Wales, having currently racked up 98 to his name.
“I didn’t really know what to expect going out there [France],” Jenkins told Wales Online.
“I enjoyed where I was and the team spirit of the boys. There were a lot of good players there who I got on with. It was just the rugby. I would have liked to play a lot more.
“I found it hard coming back international wise. I didn’t have the fitness that perhaps I would have if I was here being managed as well as I am.
“I really enjoyed the experience and the culture, but I suppose rugby took priority in the end.
“I’m just looking forward to getting back out on that field again now.
“I want to get 100 caps and keep playing for my country. You never bank on your next cap, so I’ve got to work hard to get towards that goal. Hopefully I’ll get those extra two.”
