Such a shame... Very talented young prospect...

Wish him well in his future ventures...

Just goes to prove how lucky the majority are to have long careers and come out largely ok on the physical front.

It's a lotto.

Young guys take these things to heart more so you can imagine the pain inside - but that line says it all "Whilst I am devastated I count myself very lucky and enormously privileged,"

I remember him scoring this try for Wales:

However, Wales have plenty of strength in depth on the wing to cope with Harry Robinson's retirement. We have the likes of Liam Williams, Leigh Halfpenny, Hallam Amos, Alex Cuthbert, Tom James, Eli Walker, George North, Steffan Evans, Ashton Hewitt, Kristian Phillips, Tom Prydie, Hanno Dirksen* and others still available (in the long term, hopefully) to play on the wing for Wales.

Cuthbert and James... hopefully their time in a Welsh jersey is coming to an end..

Being serious though.. I wasn't suggesting that we didn't have options on the wing, I was merely posting my sympathies for a young talent that has been forced to retire early through injury.
