Springboks legend Bryan Habana to retire at end of season
The 2007 World Cup winner and all-time leading SA try scorer said the time has come to say goodbye to his illustrious rugby union career.
South Africa's leading try-scorer Bryan Habana will retire at the end of the Top 14 season.
The Toulon wing, who turns 35 in June, is in the final year of his contract with the French giants and has opted against prolonging his career.
Habana is second on all-time list of Springboks cap-holders behind Victor Matfield with 124, scoring 67 tries for his country to go down as a great.
The flyer, a World Cup-winner in France 11 years ago, revealed on Tuesday that he is ready to hang up his boots after struggling to force his way back into the Toulon side following knee surgery last year.
Habana has won two European titles and the Top 14 during his time with Toulon and was a two-time Super Rugby champion with the Bulls.
