Sam Warburton White Isaac Nauta Jersey , a former Wales and two-time British and Irish Lions captain, announced his retirement from rugby for health reasons at the age of 29 on Wednesday, ending the career of one of the country’s greatest and most popular players.Warburton had been working to recover from neck and knee injuries since last year’s drawn Lions series against New Zealand, when he last played. He recently returned for preseason training with Cardiff Blues but felt he could not reach the high standards he set himself.”Unfortunately, after a long period of rest and rehabilitation, the decision to retire from rugby has been made with my health and wellbeing as a priority, as my body is unable to give me back what I had hoped for on my return to training,” Warburton said.Warburton played 74 games for Wales, captaining the team 49 times. He is one of two players to captain the Lions on two tours – to Australia in 2013 Luke Willson Jersey , then New Zealand in 2017 – and played in five test matches.Wales coach Warren Gatland said Warburton’s ”leadership, attitude and demeanor, along with his performances, have placed Sam up there as one of the best and most respected players in the world.”Real Madrid and Wales footballer Gareth Bale attended Whitchurch High School in Cardiff, Wales, in the same year as Warburton, with the pair playing in the same soccer team. Bale tweeted on Wednesday: ”Congratulations on an incredible career mate. Good luck for everything in the future.”The British and Irish Lions tweeted that Warbuton was ”a leader on the pitch, a gentleman off it.”Although injuries hit Warburton hard during his career, they did not prevent him establishing a reputation among the world’s best openside flankers Sylvester Williams Jersey , with fearless, critical work at the breakdown area proving his major strength.”To look back on my career, I am extremely proud of what I managed to achieve,” said Warburton, whose final game proved to be for the Lions in the 15-15 draw in the third test of the tied series with New Zealand in June 2017.Warburton emulated England’s World Cup-winning skipper, Martin Johnson, in captaining the Lions on two separate tours. He never lost a test series, with the Lions overcoming Australia 2-1 in 2013.He also steered Wales to the 2011 World Cup semifinals, when he was sent off in the match against France.—Steve Douglas is at www.twitter.com/sdouglas80 NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says Congress should enact uniform standards for any states that plan to legislate sports betting.Goodell detailed the league’s position in a statement Monday that reiterated the NFL’s stance that legalized sports gambling in the United States should be governed by federal law rather than state law. The Supreme Court ruled last week to strike down a 1992 law that barred most state-authorized sports gambling.In suggesting four core principles that should be maintained for any form of legalized sports betting Eli Harold Jersey , Goodell stressed that leagues can “protect our content and intellectual property from those who attempt to steal or misuse it.” He also said guidelines must provide substantial consumer protections; ensure fans will have access to official, reliable league data; and that law enforcement will have the resources, monitoring and enforcement tools necessary “to protect our fans and penalize bad actors here at home and abroad.”After emphasizing the importance of protecting the integrity of his sport, Goodell noted the NFL has been planning for the potential of legalized sports gambling in states other than Nevada.“(We) are prepared to address these changes in a thoughtful and comprehensive way, including substantial education and compliance trainings for our clubs, players, employees and partners,” he said. “These efforts include supporting common sense legislation that protects our players, coaches and fans and maintains public confidence in our games.”The NFL has long opposed any forms of gambling on its games Ricky Wagner Jersey , though it has approved the move of the Oakland Raiders to Las Vegas in 2020, and has strong ties to fantasy football, which is not tied to the Supreme Court decision.Many sports leagues have expressed concerns about the varied betting rules each state could pass, where bets could be placed, and who would be overseeing them.Those leagues also believe they are entitled to an “integrity fee.” The easiest way to arrange for a cut of the proceeds would be negotiating with Congress rather than deals with individual states. If it passed a nationwide bill, Congress could require casinos, tracks or state governments to share some of their revenue with the sports leagues — or pay the integrity fees, designed to cover the costs of policing betting.——AP Writer Wayne Parry contributed.
