Le deuxième-ligne écossais Tim Swinson (33 ans) a annoncé ce vendredi qu'il arrêtait sa carrière. Il jouait depuis huit saisons à Glasgow après avoir débuté à Newcaslte (2007-2012). Il a cumulé 38 sélections avec l'Écosse, entre juin 2013 et juin 2018, participant notamment à la Coupe du monde 2015.
It's a hard goodbye to the game I've played for the last 14 years, but it's time to move onto the next adventure. The memorable games, victories and friendships won't be lost, but the camaraderie will be missed. Glasgow and Newcastle have given me the opportunity to live my boyhood dream and it has not disappointed; playing in big games, finals and a World Cup felt better than I could have imagined. The teammates who shared those highs also made the lows, the injuries and disappointments manageable, I thank you. To the fans who make the game what it is - whose support, undaunted by obscure away travel and awful weather, never falters - the game would be in a far worse place without you. I would like to thank to my family, and in particular my wife, whose own sacrifices allowed me to pursue my dreams - I would never have achieved as much as I have without your support. Finally, to my daughters - I hope that I have shown you that you can achieve anything that you set your mind to, and that your childhood dreams can become reality too. . . . . @tynedalerugby @nurfc @falconsrugby @glasgowwarriors @oundleschool
