“I would like to thank every player, coach and fan who have helped and supported me over the last 15 years. I feel so lucky to be able to travel the globe and play with and against some of the best players in the world but more importantly I’ve met some great people who I will call friends for life!
“Biggest thank you to my family, without my mum and dad I would of never had the opportunities when I was young. Also to my wife Danielle and my children who have followed and supported me everywhere on my rugby journey. Love you all. Onto the next chapter!”
