Scotland’s Dan Parks announces his retirement

Former Scotland international flyhalf Dan Parks has announced his retirement from all forms of rugby after retiring from international rugby in 2012.

Australian born Parks played for Scotland over an eight year period in which he won 67 caps.

In 2012 during the Six Nations Parks announced that he was retiring from Test rugby but continued to play for Cardiff Blues in the Pro 12.

Last season he moved to Ireland and played for Connacht also in the Pro 12.

“I feel incredibly fortunate to have been able to play a sport which I love for over 11 years as a professional,” Parks told the BBC.

“My time over here in Scotland, Wales and Ireland has been the best years of my life, and I would like to thank all those who have contributed and helped me along this amazing journey.

“Of course, my highlight was being able to wear the blue of Scotland, and something I will forever treasure and hold very close to my heart.”
