Ireland and Connacht prop Nathan White is retiring from professional rugby on medical advice following a concussion he sustained in March.

White, 35, was injured during Connacht’s win over Leinster at the Sportsground in Galway in March.

The former Waikato captain made his debut for Ireland in August last year and won 13 caps in all.

“While it’s disappointing to finish this way I can look back at my career with a lot of pride,” said White.
