Real shame this. Was a fantastic servant and would have won more Wales caps if it wasn't for injury
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1

Excellent player, big shame. Remember a few stand out performances a few seasons back where he had to switch to back row. Always gave everything.

Top Scarlets player who gave everything. Sad to hear as he could have gone for a few more years. All the best with his coaching now.

Nothing but great memories from his relatively all too brief run of games when fit.

Will always recall his captaincy in the LV v Leicester, when we stuffed them; his brilliant cameos at 7 when called on there; his try on a landmark appearance after returning from injury. Ever approachable and will be a huge asset coaching or wherever he chooses to apply his talent.
Any offence taken on board is only a literate/cy consequence. Every attempt at humour is just that. No personal insult intended. Standards lowered for trolls.

Gutted to see his retire. He really gave it everything and was a good leader on the pitch too. Let’s ensure we get one more home game so we can give him the send off he deserves!

He's only 31. Maybe he's had enough and wants to do something different to playing rugby.
