Tomorrow sees one of Wales’ greatest ever players hang up his International boots! Shane Williams has dominated the number 11 spot in the Welsh squad for the last 11 years, won IRB player of the Year in 2008 and is currently Wales all time leading try scorer with 57 to his name. He will be sadly missed by all those who have grown to love his sideways stepping and lighting quick runs in the red shirt.
As a little thank you, Puma ran a competition on Shane’s Twitter site to customise his boots with farewell messages from fans. He had a great response with most being heartfelt and grateful for his years of entertaining on the pitch. Some were a bit crazy!
Shane will continue to be part of our Puma family whilst playing domestically at Ospreys and also for the foreseeable future with coaching and as a brand ambassador of Puma. Catch his last game (and the boots) against Australia tomorrow on the BBC from 2pm.
