Rossouw to retire

World Cup-winning Springbok forward Danie Rossouw will retire at the end of the European season.

The 36-year-old former Bulls lock/loose forward has been with Toulon since last year.

His time with the French club has been blighted by injury but he returned to action in February after four months out, starting in the second row in the European Cup quarter-final and semi-final wins against Leinster and Munster.

In a decorative career, Rossouw has collected three Currie Cup titles, three Super Rugby titles, a Tri-Nations title, a World Cup title, and a series win over the British & Irish Lions.

'I've made ​​my decision, I'll stop, this is my last season,' Rossouw told La Provence. 'I'm going to play in the remaining matches this season and give it everything I've got.'
