Wales and Ospreys’ winger and former IRB World Player of the Year, Shane Williams, has exclusively revealed that he plans to retire from international rugby after the 2011 Rugby World Cup.
The admission comes in S4C’s new series Shane Williams: Rygbi a Mwy, to be broadcast in full on Friday 10 September, 21:00. Shane has speculated about his international future in the past but hadn’t yet confirmed his plans – until now.
During the candid interview, Shane admits that he plans to give his all to the current season in the hope of securing a place on the flight to New Zealand.
“I want to decide myself when I finish playing and not have that decision taken away from me by anyone else. It depends how far Wales go in next year’s World Cup finals and whether I’m picked, but my last game in a Welsh shirt will be during the World Cup.”
Rygbi a Mwy offers viewers an opportunity to learn more about some of our favourite present and past rugby stars, including Stephen Jones, Gareth Edwards, Clive Rowlands, Gwyn Jones, Gareth Davies and Ieuan Evans.
