Born in Port Talbot and brought up near Bridgend, Jenkins was educated at Llandovery College, Carmarthenshire, and at Jesus College, Oxford, where he gained Blues for rugby and cricket. He won his first Blue as a freshman in 1930, playing in three consecutive varsity matches at Twickenham and, at centre three-quarter, never on the losing side. He won his first cap as full back against England at Twickenham in 1932 and his international matches included Wales's first ever victory at Twickenham in 1933, and the famous triumph over the All Blacks in 1935 at Cardiff.
