Nieto announces plans to retire

Carlos Nieto will hang up his boots at the end of the season

Saracens prop Carlos Nieto has announced he will retire at the end of this season.

The 36-year-old joined Saracens from their Aviva Premiership rivals Gloucester in 2009.

He won 34 caps for Italy, making his Test debut against England during the 2002 Six Nations Championship.

"I am really excited for the rest of the season and to be honest I don't feel like I am retiring yet," Nieto told Saracens' official website.

"I am only thinking about preparing for the next few games, which will hopefully bring the club more success.

"I have been fortunate to win the Premiership in my time here and we are in the great position at the moment to finish my career winning another title."
