“This is my last” – Five players who are reportedly hanging up their boots in 2022

#5. Alun Wyn Jones (Wales)

The 36-year-old was forced off the field during last Saturday’s defeat against New Zealand and requires shoulder surgery once again.

“I don’t think he’ll be available for the Six Nations,” revealed Wales boss Wayne Pivac.

“You learn a lot about the worth of people when they’re not there. I think a lot of people take Alun Wyn for granted – he’s always been there and got seniority.

“That leadership is really important. The essence is on others to step up and take that role on.”

Jones, who is only contracted with the Ospreys until the end of the season, is thought to be seriously considering his future but is determined to pull on the red jersey of Wales at least one more time.

The concern is that his shoulder, which he has now dislocated twice in a few months, would become a recurring injury that would only get worse if he continues to play.
