Wesley Fofana, a former centre for France, announced his retirement on Monday because his body could no longer handle the demands of playing professional rugby.
Fofana, 34, played his last of 48 Tests in August 2019. He spent his whole senior career at Clermont.
His first try came in a 30-12 victory against Italy at the 2012 Six Nations, and he went on to score tries in his next three games against Scotland, Ireland, and England.
Of his 15 Test tries, his most memorable was arguably a stunning 70-metre solo effort in a losing cause against England at Twickenham in 2013.
Fofana Stated on Social media:
“After 15 years with Clermont and the great family of French rugby, a chapter is turning for me,”
“These past years were at times hard to manage. One obvious thing I noticed was that my body could no longer take the standard needed to play professional rugby now.
“So, I have made the decision to stop my career,”
