Two British and Irish Lions tours, four Six Nations, Three Grand Slams later one of rugby's best props, Adam Jones, has announced his retirement from rugby.
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.
Thank you.... pic.twitter.com/QwOpRh25Cp

Adam Jones has retired.
An amazing career.
Grandslams and Lions' tours dripping off him.
Literally the cornerstone of Gatland's success with Wales and now takes his place amongst the Welsh greats.
