Won another 40 caps after the World Cup final, a mainstay in a team that was chopped and changed in the subsequent years. Retired completely from the game in 2009 before making a short comeback in 2011 for Wasps. Took over as the Head of Rugby at the Welsh Rugby Union in September 2013 following his brief tenure as acting CEO of Cornish Pirates.  He resigned in November 2015, citing personal reasons which would prevent him from dedicating himself to the position full-time.

Forced to miss the 2007 World Cup after he broke a leg playing for Gloucester. Continued playing for England through the 2011 World Cup where he was at the centre of one of the scandals surrounding England’s campaign. He married Zara Phillips in Edinburgh in 2011 and still played rugby for Gloucester up until 2014. He still occasionally coaches and plays for amateur club MinchinhamptonRFC, who compete in Gloucester 2. In December 2016, Tindall was announced as an Athlete Ambassador for the charity Right To Play UK, which uses the transformative power of play to educate and empower children to overcome the effects of poverty, conflict and disease in disadvantaged communities.
