CONFIRMED: Sam Jones confirms retirement with emotional Tweet

It is with great sadness that Wasps have announced the enforced retirement of Sam Jones.

The decision has been taken based on medical advice from a leading consultant.



The 26-year-old suffered an ankle dislocation while training with England prior to the 2016 autumn international series.

This caused significant additional damage including a fracture of the fibular bone, disruption of the ligaments joining the main bones of the ankle, a rupture of the medial ligament plus significant damage to ankle cartilage.
