Shane Williams chats to Will Greenwood%]
Legendary Wales wing Shane Williams capped a superb international career with a last-minute try against Australia at an emotionally-charged Millennium Stadium on Saturday.
His 60th Test try, including two in four outings for the British & Irish Lions, was not enough to propel his side to victory but still managed to bring the house down with over 60,000 getting what they wanted - to a certain degree.
Ahead of his 87th and final appearance in a Wales shirt, the 34-year-old spoke to former England international Will Greenwood and revealed that he knew that now was the right time to bring an end to his Test career.
