Absent from the field for more than a season due to a knee injury, Andrew Conway, 33-year-old Irish international player, has decided to put an end to his rugby career. A difficult decision, which he explained on the official website of the Irish federation.
“Unfortunately, I was advised to retire from professional rugby permanently due to a knee injury,” he explained. And this “despite exceptional work carried out by Munster (his club, editor’s note) and the Irish federation”. He took the opportunity to thank “everyone he has worked with over the years”.
During his career, Andrew Conway wore the Munster jersey 150 times, scoring 50 tries. He also honored 30 selections with the XV du Trèfle, for 15 achievements.
