Connacht legend Matt Healy has confirmed he will retire from professional rugby at the end of the season.

The 33-year-old is Connacht''s record try-scorer, having crossed the line 58 times in 151 appearances in green.

He was instrumental in Connacht's famous Pro12 title success of 2016, scoring the third try in their 20-10 final win against Leinster, while his 10 tries in the league season were joint-top with Ulster's Craig Gilroy.

His 2016 form for Connacht also saw him recognised with an Irish cap, coming off the bench to make his debut in the third Test of Ireland's summer tour of South Africa.

Healy remained a first-team regular for Connacht up until last season, making 13 appearances and scoring three tries, but his only appearance this season came in the Heineken Champions Cup defeat to Leicester Tigers in January.

In a post on Instagram, he confirmed his decision to retire after 10 years with Connacht Rugby.
