Posted on: 30th November 2011

Andrew George has seconded EDM2486. Motion reads: “That this House notes that Shane Williams from the Amman Valley in Carmarthenshire will play his ninety-firstand final international test match on 3December 2011; further notes that during his international career he has scored 59 international tries, the third highest by an individual in the history of international rugby and Wales’ leading try scorer of all time; further notes that his dazzling brilliance has brought euphoric joy to Welsh rugby supporters and earned admiration across the rugby world; further notes that Shane was named International Rugby Board player of the year in 2008; and believes a famous Welsh victory over Australia on Saturday would be a fitting end to a remarkable international career.”
