Alun Wyn Jones, captain and historic player of Wales and the British & Irish Lions, made reference to his eventual retirement during an interview with a European media. There, the 35-year-old discussed the effect it will have when he finally stops playing and expressed: “When my last game comes around, a part of me will die and I will accept it.”
The Welsh international player gave an interview to the BBC about the sale of his autobiography ‘Belonging’.
“I still enjoy it, that’s the main thing. If I didn’t and my numbers didn’t pile up and I didn’t act on it, I’d probably make the tough decision (to retire) rather than put it in the hands of someone else.“said the second line when asked by the incipient rumor of his retirement.
With more caps in Wales (148) and Ospreys (248), Wyn Jones hopes to play the Rugby United Championship, to be played from September 24, which will be his 17th season with the club. “I’m still going. Hopefully I have a little more in the tank. As long as my numbers pile up, I’ll keep playing“, he finished.
