FORMER Dragons star Hallam Amos’ career is over because of a hamstring injury – denying the Cardiff man one last appearance at Rodney Parade.

The 27-year-old from Monmouthshire announced in October that he would be hanging up his boots at the end of the season to focus on his medical career.

The Wales wing/full-back would have been guaranteed a warm reception on his return to the Dragons a week on Friday but he suffered a hamstring injury against Munster in Cork last weekend.

He will now miss Cardiff’s final three games of the campaign against Zebre, the Dragons and Benetton.

Amos made his Dragons debut against Wasps in the Anglo-Welsh Cup when he was still at Monmouth School.

He was very briefly the youngest player to feature in regional rugby at 17 years and 28 days until 16-year-old Jack Dixon came off the bench in Wycombe.

Amos went on to make 115 appearances for the Dragons – scoring 36 tries to go second on the all-time chart behind Aled Brew – before leaving for Cardiff in 2019.

He won 25 caps for Wales and was a member of the squads at the 2015 and 2019 World Cups.
