Hallam Amos has won 25 games for Wales and scored six attempts.

Welsh winger Hallam Amos will retire from rugby at the age of 27.

Amos, who plays for Cardiff, will leave the game at the end of the season to focus on his medical career.

“After a decade of professional rugby, the 2021/22 season will be the last,” Amos wrote on Instagram.

“I am very grateful for the incredible experiences I have had over the last 10 seasons, but the time has almost come to face a new challenge.

“It has always been my intention to finish when I finish my career and this season aligns very well with the last year of my medical studies, so it is a perfect time to transition from the field to the hospital.”

Amos began his senior rugby career with the Newport-based Dragons and made his Wales debut at the age of 19 against Tonga in 2013.

He joined Cardiff in 2019 after eight years with the Dragons and played in the 2015 and 2019 World Cups, winning the last of his 25 matches for Wales against Argentina in July.

Amos added: “Throughout my years, combining college with a rugby career, I have had a lot of support, from the WRU, from the Dragons during the early years of my career, from Cardiff Rugby more recently and from Cardiff Uni itself. , and I will always be grateful for your willingness to adjust to both aspects of my life.

“A special thanks to Dai (Young, Cardiff Rugby Director) and Wayne (Pivac, Wales Head Coach) who have been understanding over the past two weeks as I spoke to them about the thought process behind my decision.

“Retiring at 27 will definitely be weird, but I am fully committed to Cardiff for the rest of the season and I hope I can finish at a high level in the coming months.”

Young said: “Obviously it will be disappointing to lose a player of Hallam’s quality and he has a lot of rugby left, but you can only admire his decision.”

“Not many players can go out on their own terms, and switching from rugby to a full-time career in medicine sets him up for a long and fruitful career.

“Hallam has worked incredibly hard to juggle rugby and his studies thus far and has accomplished a great deal in the game both regionally and internationally.

“He will continue to be an important figure for us for the rest of the season and he can play without the pressure of the decision on him.

“For now, the focus is on Cardiff and enjoying his rugby and next summer we will wish him all the best for the future.”
