Neath Player Forced to Retire

Johnny DaviesSad news today that Neath outside half Johnny Davies has been forced to retire.  Aged just 24, Johnny spent most of last season injured and it appears that now the injury seems to have got the better of him.

Announcing his retirement, Johnny tweeted “Devastated to a say that I have to retire from rugby at 24 years old. Never ever thought I’d actually say it.  Thanks to everyone involved with Neath Rugby and Waunarlwydd RFC. Thanks for the memories I guess! Cheers”

He showed great promise during his brief spell with us and naturally we wish him all the best for the future.

Better news though for Kevin James.  The Gnoll legend has been announced as coach of the Ospreys Under 18 side alongside former Neath outside half Shaun Conner.  Again, we wish him all the best too.
