Williams to Quit Rugby in December


Another Welsh rugby star is said to leave the international business in December.

After the announcement made this week by Gareth Thomas to retire, also Shane Williams announces he is going to play for the last time against Australia if chosen, in December.
He said:

"I've decided I am going to make myself available for this game. If selected, I want to play."

Wales’s wing will continue to play for the Ospreys after ceasing his international career. Speaking to Welsh papers, he said:

"I always said I would know in myself when the time came to stop playing for Wales and that time is very nearly upon me.

"After this last game in December, that's definitely it for me, there'll be no changing my mind."

In December, Australia and Wales will play a rematch of the game played during this year World Cup in New Zealand, when Australian won.
