London Irish flanker Declan Danaher: 'I'm not dreading retirement anymore'

London Irish flanker Declan Danaher admits that he is "not dreading" the day when he has to retire from rugby.

London Irish flanker Declan Danaher has admitted that he is no longer "dreading" the day that he has to hang up his boots.

The 33-year-old has suggested that this may be his last season before he focuses on a coaching career with the Exiles.

"I'm not dreading it," Danaher told BBC Berkshire. "I think in my mid-20s or heading towards my 30s I was in denial, but I've come to terms with it now."

The flanker is expected to feature in his 270th game for London Irish this weekend.
