England wing Jonny May has announced his retirement from Test rugby.

The 33-year-old Gloucester player made his debut against Argentina in 2013 and scored 36 tries in 78 international appearances.


He sits second behind Rory Underwood (49) on his country’s list of all-time leading try scorers.

May’s final Test outing came in England’s 16-15 Rugby World Cup semi-final loss to eventual winners South Africa on October 21st.

“Words can’t describe the journey that I’ve been on so I won’t try to put it into words,” he said in a statement on englandrugby.com.


“At this point in time all I want to say from the bottom of my heart is a huge thank you to everybody who has been a part of this journey with me.

“It’s an honour and a dream to represent my country and although I won’t be out there on the pitch anymore physically, I will always feel connected to this team in spirit.”
