BBC wrote:Huw Bennett has announced his retirement as a player after three operations failed to cure an Achilles tendon problem.
The 51-times capped hooker, 30, has not played since picking up the injury while playing for Wales against Scotland in February 2012.
Bennett joined French club Lyon from Ospreys four months later, but failed to play a game for his new club.

Such a shame

He certainly had his critics, but his final performances for Wales at the 2011 World Cup were first class - Without Bennett, the WC could have been very different for Wales, and I will remember him for those performances.

Always a shame to see a player retire early.

Shocked to see he had 51 caps though - had not realised he had played anywhere near that number!!

Most off the bench behind Rees, McBride and Mefin

He has been around a fair while though.

Certainly changed a lot of peoples opinions, and sad that when he finally came good... career ending injury, such a shame

Never rated him until the 2011 world cup, shame to retire under such circumstances
