Stephen Moore has today confirmed he will retire from all forms of the game, following the Qantas Wallabies’ final Test of the 2017 Spring Tour against Scotland.
Australia’s second most-capped International of all-time had originally planned to play one final season with the St.George Queensland Reds in Vodafone Super Rugby, but will now hang up the boots at Murrayfield on Saturday.
“I’d started planning for life after Rugby since announcing my retirement from the International game back in July this year and the opportunity that I was exploring materialised probably six months earlier than I had expected,” Moore said.
“So I have made the decision, in conjunction with the QRU, to finish my Rugby career now and take up a new opportunity. This also allows Brad (Thorn) and the Reds coaches to move forward with their planning for 2018 and beyond.”
