Halfpenny Admits Retirement Fears

Wales fullback Leigh Halfpenny has admitted he had concerns he would have to retire after his recent concussion issues.

The 30-year-old was forced to take three months out of the game after he suffered a serious knock to the head in Wales’ win over Australia during the autumn internationals.

Having watched Wales secure the Grand Slam during the Six Nations, Halfpenny has admitted there were times during his recovery when he thought he had played his last game of rugby.

Halfpenny said: “There was a point where I was constantly having headaches and was trying to do something on the bike or jogging and my head would be pounding from it.

“You were thinking when is this going to end. It was a tough one. I’m delighted to be over it.”
