New Zealand international Israel Dagg has announced his retirement at the age of 30 after failing to recover from a serious knee problem.

Dagg required two operations on the injury that was initially sustained in early 2018 before suffering a recurrence while on Super Rugby duty for the Crusaders last weekend.

The gifted full-back and wing won 66 caps and was a member of the 2011 World Cup-winning All Blacks squad.

‘While it’s bittersweet to mark the end of my playing career, I’m grateful to still be able to contribute to this Crusaders team in 2019,’ said Dagg, who took medical advice to retire.

‘On a personal note, I’m looking forward to taking on some new challenges in the future, and looking forward to spending more time with my young family.’
