Adam Jones

Former Wales prop Jones to retire

Jones on Sunday announced that he will hang up his boots 18 years after making his professional debut for Neath.

The veteran front-row forward, who went on two British and Irish Lions tours, will remain at Harlequins as assistant forwards coach on a full-time basis when his playing days come to an end.

"I'll be officially retiring from playing at the end of the season. I've had a great career and never thought I'd go on to achieve what I have." said Jones.

Watch Adam Jones steal a home run from Manny Machado in WBC

The United States and Dominican Republic were in the seventh inning of the World Baseball Classic in San Diego Saturday when the Baltimore outfielder robbed Orioles teammate Manny Machado.

Machado drilled a shot to the 396 mark in right-center where Jones tracked it and leaped, stealing a sure home run.

Machado tipped his helmet to the native San Diegan Jones for a stunning play.
