Pienaar concedes retirement

Springbok scrumhalf Ruan Pienaar has conceded that his Test career is in all likelihood over.

Pienaar, who has 88 Tests to his name, last played for the Boks at the 2015 World Cup, and has not formed part of the national team's plans this year.

'I think that's probably it,' he told the Belfast Telegraph. 'I'm happy with my decision and I'll put my energy into Ulster now and whatever is waiting in the next year or two. I'm still supporting the guys, but that's probably the end.'

Pienaar is set to leave Ulster at the end of the season, and it now remains to be seen where he might conclude his career.
