RAW RUGBY: Emotional Warburton tribute will leave Welsh fans in the corner of their room in the foetal position

It has been a sad day for many fans in the rugby world. None more so than fans of Welsh rugby who have lost their hero in the form of Sam Warburton.

Their talismanic openside flanker has been a stalwart for Welsh rugby over the past eight years and the announcement of his retirement today has no doubt shocked the rugby world. Many believed that Warburton would be fit to at the very least be in contention for a World Cup spot in Japan. However, it was not to be after Warburton stated that, “his body could not go on anymore”.

The social media reaction to this news has been none other than monumental, (in rugby terms) with fans and celebrities alike leaving their support for the former Wales captain.

We hope you enjoy this short career tribute put together by the guys over at Raw Rugby.
