Video: Barbarians send-off a fitting finale for French legend Thierry Dusautoir

By Kirsten Elder

The final game of French legend Thierry Dusautoir's storied career, which has taken in some 80 caps for Les Bleus and a World Player of the Year award, will come for the Barbarians tomorrow night against Ulster at Kingspan Stadium.

"I received the invitation four months ago from the Barbarians and, when I knew I was going to end my career, I thought it was a nice way for me to say goodbye.

"You know the Barbarians are a legitimate team and it is always special to take part in a tour.

"I am still playing because the Barbarians invited me, but I'm sure I don't want to play any more after this. It was a hard decision to take but I felt it was a good moment for me to step away.

"I wanted to give more time to things off the pitch, and when you feel happy outside the pitch it is a good time to say goodbye."
