Former All Blacks hooker Nathan Harris announces retirement from rugby

The 29-year-old former All Black on Friday announced he was finishing up in the sport after continued discomfort from an ankle injury.

“It has been a massive year and it is time to hang up the boots,” he said in a statement released by the Chiefs.

“After playing 10 years of footy, my ankle has had enough, and it is time to move onto something new.

“It has been a really hard decision, but at the end of the day, my body and my family come first.
