Golding announces retirement plans
Newcastle Falcons prop Jonny Golding confirms that he will retire from professional rugby in the summer.

Newcastle Falcons prop Jonny Golding has revealed that he will retire from professional rugby at the end of the season.

The 30-year-old, who has made 133 appearances for the club, has also confirmed that he will "go into business" next year.

"I have had a good career which has spanned 13 years and I have enjoyed every minute of my time in the game," Golding told Falcons TV.

"It is a decision that I have not taken lightly, and it is one that I have taken my time over, talking to my wife and family.

"I am looking to go into business and it will be a good challenge for me. My family have been very supportive of what I am doing, but I am going to massively miss what I have been doing here at Kingston Park."

Golding has been at Newcastle for seven years.
