Cardiff: Wales international Hallam Amos’ final season cut short by injury

Stan Wilson

Cardiff’s Hallam Amos has played his last match of professional rugby the club announced after sustaining an injury versus Munster.

The full-back had already confirmed that this was to be his last season, but unfortunately the high grade hamstring injury he picked up in last week’s URC fixture cut it short.

Amos’ decision to retire was made so that he could focus on his medical career now having completed his clinical medical exams.

Prior to Cardiff, he played nine seasons with the Dragons where he made 118 appearances and won his first Wales cap after impressing for his region.

The Welshman went on to win 25 caps for his country, scoring 30 points with his most recent cap coming in July, 2021 against Argentina at the Principality Stadium.

The in-form back was not the only first XV player hurt versus Munster with Rory Thornton and Jarrod Evans also picking up injuries while Kristian Dacey and Garyn Smith are both confirmed as being out for the season.

Injuries are building up for Cardiff with players such as Willis Halaholo, Josh Adams, Tomos Williams and club captain Josh Turnbull all out currently, harming the club’s depth.
