Ronan O'Gara and Rob Kearney among tributes to retiring Felix Jones
Very sad news.
Felix Jones is looking at a life beyond rugby this evening after the Munster man was forced to retire after suffering a career ending neck injury.
The 28-year-old suffered a neck injury against Glasgow Warriors in round three of the Pro12 and this evening he's announced he will not play rugby ever again.
The Dubliner won 13 caps for Ireland and narrowly missed out on the squad for this year's Rugby World Cup.
His teamates at international and provincial level have been paying tribute to him this evening
