Cian Bohane discusses his reasons for his retirement.
Munster’s Cian Bohane has decided to retire from Rugby. The young Corkman captained his province to victory in the British and Irish Cup last month.
Bohane, made his senior debut for Munster in May 2013, and since then he has played five times for the club this season in the Guinness Pro12, which included his first start back in September against Edinburgh.
As many people may find it as a shock, this was not the case for Bohane, he thought long and hard about the decision for quite sometime.
Addressing Munster fans on his twitter account, the centre said:
“I’ve been lucky enough to have been living a dream for the past seven years and it’s been made even more special with the characters I’ve shared the dressing room with,”.
“The decision to retire might come as a surprise to some, but it’s one I came to after months of deliberation. I’ve realised there is more to life than sport and I felt it necessary to fully apply myself to my studies to benefit me in future years.”
“I’m incredibly grateful to be finishing my professional career on my own terms as I am well aware that it’s a rarity in this sport.”
He has been studying for a degree in strength and conditioning and he’s due to begin a new course at University College Cork in September.
