Phil Bennett has paid tribute to Stephen Jones after the record-breaking fly-half announced his retirement from rugby.
Jones, Wales' most capped player, will hang up his boots at the end of the season and move into a coaching role with London Wasps.
It draws the curtain on an illustrious 17 year career in which he won 104 Welsh caps, played in six British & Irish Lions Test matches and racked up 970 international points.
Jones enjoyed two stints in Llanelli and his fellow Scarlets, Wales and Lions great has led the plaudits.
"It is great to see that Stephen has being given a coaching role with Wasps," Bennett told the South Wales Evening Post.
"Hopefully, he can get some valuable experience coaching in the Premiership under Dai Young and then maybe he can come back to Wales one day.
"He has spoken about the Scarlets being the club dear to his heart, it would be fantastic to see him back here in a coaching capacity.
"Stephen has been a wonderful role model for younger players and the one thing that has stood out throughout his career is his attitude.
"I was speaking to some of the Wasps coaching team at the start of the season when I was a guest for a game at Bath and they couldn't speak highly enough about his professionalism.
"I remember Stephen when he first came through at Stradey. Frano Botica was fly-half at the time and was doing some kicking practice after training. Who was out there with him? Stephen Jones.
"He has worked incredibly hard at his game throughout the career and has been up against some class fly-halves for Wales over the years.
"It is testament to his ability and work ethic that he still managed to win more than a century of caps and played in six Tests for the Lions. He deserves all the accolades and plaudits he gets and I wish him all the best in his new role."
