Rhys Webb Latest Wales Rugby Star To Quit International Side 100 Days Out From World Cup

Webb says an "opportunity to play abroad" had influenced his decision

100 days before the World Cup starts, Rhys Webb has quit playing international rugby for Wales.

The scrum-half's joined his Ospreys team-mates Alun Wyn Jones and Justin Tipuric by announcing a surprise retirement from playing for his country.

All three were members of Wales' preliminary World Cup training squad ahead of the tournament in France later this year.

Writing on Instagram, Webb said that "present uncertainty and difficulties in Welsh rugby" and "an opportunity to play abroad" had influenced his decision.

The 34-year-old made his Test debut 11 years ago, but he missed out on the 2015 World Cup through injury.
