“I have loved every minute of my 13 seasons in professional rugby, and it is something I never thought that I would have been able to achieve,” Garvey said.

“Rugby has also given me the chance to travel all over Europe and play in some of the biggest stadiums.

“It has given me the chance to see different places and to play with and against some world-class players.”
