Rory Best will play his last game at the Rugby World Cup

Ireland captain Rory Best has confirmed he will retire from the game after the Rugby World Cup.

The Ulster hooker had indicated would call it a day for the national team following the tournament, but may stay on with his province.

However he has now confirmed that he will retire from the game completely after the tournament in Japan.

The Ulster captain has earned 116 caps for the national team - winning the Six Nations four times including the Grand Slam last year.

He has also played 219 times for his province since his debut in 2005 against Munster.

The 36-year-old had previously indicated he might stay on with his province, but will call it a day.

Best made his Ulster debut against Munster in a Celtic League match in 2005, after signing his first provincial deal the previous year.

He made his international debut against New Zealand a few months later during the Autumn Internationals in that year.
