Mils Muliaina retires from international rugby

Mils Muliaina retires from All Blacks duty after winning his 100th Test cap.

New Zealand fullback Mils Muliaina has announced that he has played his last game for the All Blacks.

The 31-year-old won his 100th Test cap yesterday during New Zealand's Rugby World Cup quarter-final victory over Argentina, but left the field early with a fractured shoulder.

"From today onwards, I will be a former All Black," Muliaina said after the match.

"It only sunk in that it was over about five minutes ago. I really wanted to have a finish in a couple of weeks' time but it is not to be. This is rugby. Last night I was on top of the world but it is like a roller coaster.

"New Zealanders have been right behind me all the way so it has been fantastic."

Muliaina made his Test debut in June 2003 against England.
