Prop forced to retire due to horrific training ground injury, aged 25

The Dragons have confirmed that prop Jack Cosgrove has retired from professional rugby on medical grounds with immediate effect.

The 25-year-old sustained a serious eye injury during a training session at the Dragons training centre at Ystrad Mynach in October.

The front row, who signed for Dragons in the summer, has now made the decision to retire from professional sport, following specialist treatment and medical advice.

A statement from the PRO14 club read: “Everyone at the Dragons wishes Jack every success in his future and he will continue to receive professional help and support from the region as he makes the transition from playing.”

Cosgrove moved to Rodney Parade on a two-year contract over the summer.
