Former Ireland and Leinster full-back Rob Kearney has confirmed he will retire after Saturday's game for the Barbarians against Samoa.

Kearney, 35, tweeted that the match at Twickenham will be his "last game of rugby".

The two-time British and Irish Lions tourist won four Six Nations titles, including Grand Slams in 2009 and 2018. At club level, he helped Leinster to six Pro14 titles, four Heineken Champions Cups and one European Challenge Cup.

Kearney wrote on social media: "It’s always been a dream to play for the @Barbarian_FC and what a historic team to play your last game of rugby with, grateful for the opportunity!"

Kearney made 95 appearances for his country and 219 for Leinster in a successful career which also took in a brief spell in Australia with Western Force.
