Tindall enjoys Kingsholm farewell

Mike Tindall is poised to announce his retirement from rugby union.

The 35-year-old, 75-times capped centre tweeted, after his side's 38-30 home Aviva Premiership victory over London Irish:


Looks like the last game at Kingsholm has been played, gutted it has to end, good win to finish on though. Love to the #glawsfamily

When asked about the tweet outside the changing rooms, Tindall, who is married to the Princess Royal's daughter Zara Phillips, said: "I don't want to say anything now - I will do it at some point next week.

"There will be plenty of time next week (to speak with the media)."

Tindall said he would make himself available for selection for Gloucester's final match of the season away at local rivals Worcester but wanted to say goodbye to the club's fans at the last match of the campaign at Kingsholm.
