Dan Way: Injury forces Newport Gwent Dragons prop to retire
Newport Gwent Dragons prop Dan Way has been forced to retire from rugby because of a shoulder injury.
The 28-year-old appeared in over 100 games for the Dragons after making his debut against Gloucester in 2010.
Swindon-born Way also played for Bedwas, Ebbw Vale, Pontypool, Blackwood and Newport.
"It's very disappointing that I have been forced to retire from rugby," Way said.
"I'm grateful for the opportunity and the experiences I have been given during my time at the region as it's something that not many people get to do."
Dragons director of rugby Lyn Jones said Way's retirement was a big loss to the region ahead of the new season.
"His shoulder injury became all too apparent in the last 6 weeks of the season," Jones said.
"He has made a wise choice for his future health and we all wish him well."
