Tindall bows out to complete England '03 World Cup squad retirement

The 35-year-old announced his decision on Twitter this morning.

MIKE TINDALL HAS officially confirmed his retirement, thereby ensuring that every member of the England squad that won the 2003 World Cup has hung up their boots.

With Iain Balshaw having announced his decision to bow out of the professional game on Friday, centre Tindall was the only remaining member of Clive Woodward’s former squad not to have called time on his career.

The 35-year-old took to Twitter early this morning to share the following message:

Tindall played his club rugby with Bath from 1997 until 2005, before making the switch to Gloucester for the remainder of his playing days. The West Yorkshire native also won 75 caps for England.

In contrast to the English, there are three members of Ireland’s initial 30-man squad for the ’03 World Cup still playing: Peter Stringer, Paul O’Connell and Donncha O’Callaghan.
