Pat McCabe’s retirement is a huge loss for Australian rugby as the mourning period following the weekend’s loss to the All Blacks continues.
The Brumbies midfielder and talented Wallaby McCabe was strongly suggested to retire from rugby by his specialist in Sydney today after suffering his third neck injury during last Saturday night’s clash against the All Blacks at Eden Park.
McCabe has already come back from a couple of career threatening injuries over the past few years.
Rugby legend Stephen Larkham told the media that an official decision hasn’t yet been made, but McCabe himself has already decided to retire.
McCabe had one year remaining on his Super Rugby contract with the Brumbies.
