The former Ospreys and Wales prop joined Harlequins in 2015 and now 37, has revealed on BBC Two Wales that he is set to retire from the game.

A lot of people probably thought I already was retired because I haven't been on the pitch this year, but I gave it another go this year in a player-coach role and have been lucky enough to have been given that shot by Harlequins.

I haven't missed playing. It's not been like every weekend I've been itching to get on the field. At the moment I'm scrum coaching - that keeps you in the game.
