Donnie Macfadyen has decided to retire

One of the Glasgow Warriors' longest serving players, Donnie Macfadyen, is to end his playing career aged only 28.

The back-row forward, who won 11 caps for Scotland, is to return to university where he will study sports science.

Alongside studies at Napier University, he will work with Edinburgh Rugby to put his experience into practice.

"I take with me some fantastic memories of playing for Glasgow," Macfadyen said.

"Injuries have played such a big part in my career, but all the good times by far outweigh the bad."
