Alun Wyn Jones composed as ever in emotional possible career finisher with Wales

It was a tough end for Wales and Warren Gatland as Wales ran out 40-17 losers against New Zealand in a game that was full of fast-flowing rugby and tempo.

It was possibly the end of Alun Wyn Jones’ international career today as the 34-year-old put in a monumental shift for the men in red in the Bronze Final.

It was brilliant to see these scenes on the final whistle with fellow NZ captain Kieran Read who is also set to end his international career.

It was also good to see AWJ with his kids directly after the game as well.

He has been such a servant to Welsh rugby over the years and it was great to see him getting to spend time with his children straight after that.

And it was also fantastic to see how composed he was in his final interview after the game.

A lot of players let their emotions get ahead of them when this happens. (That’s totally fine), but it was also great to see this, pure composure from this man which has always symbolised what he has been as a player.

He was as composed as ever in his press chat straight after the match…

We loved how he subtly digged at Scarlets when he misunderstood the journalist too!

Never lose it!
