One more season for Guilhem Guirado

Former France captain and Montpellier hooker Guilhem Guirado plans to retire at the end of next season.

The 74 test cap front-rower retired from international rugby after the Rugby World Cup in Japan. 


Speaking after Montpellier's final game of the season on Saturday, the hooker confirmed that the 2021/22 season will be his final one.

"I think it will be my last season," said the 34-year-old

"It's in my head. You have to know how to stop, you have to know how to enjoy it fully,"


Guiradois under contract with Montpellier until June 2022. 

He was a World Cup winner with the France under-21s in 2006 and went on to captain France 32 times in 74 tests for Les Bleus. 


A member of the 2011 World Cup team that reached the final, Guirado featured in the 2015 and 2019 tournaments. 

Having started his career at Perpignan, Guirado made the move to Toulon where he won the Champions Cup in 2015. A move to Montpellier came after the World Cup in Japan and he led the side to Challenge Cup glory last month.
