No more Stephen Moore

Rugby Australia said in a statement on Wednesday that Moore originally planned to play one last season with the Queensland Reds in Super Rugby, but will retire after the match at Murrayfield.

"I'd started planning for life after rugby since announcing my retirement from the international game back in July, and the opportunity that I was exploring materialised probably six months earlier than I had expected," Moore said.
