Northampton Saints winger Paul Diggin will retire from top flight rugby at the end of the season, the club have announced.
The 29-year-old will concentrate on his role as a coach with the Saints' academy.
“I could not have asked for more from my playing career,” he told the club's official website.
“I’ve played in a Heineken Cup final, helped my team win at Twickenham and have collected a number of winner's medals.
“But time has to move on and I’m delighted to be a part of the academy coaching team.
"We’ve got some exciting talent coming through, and hopefully I can help them develop as players and know what it means to play for the Saints."
