Leinster stalwart Isa Nacewa will retire at the end of the season - and this time it's permanent.

The utilty back initially called time on his career back in 2013, before returning to Leinster in 2015.

Nacewa made his debut in September 2008 and went on to play 182 times for Leo Cullen's side.

Among his achievements for the province include three Heineken Cup medals, a Challenge Cup and a Pro12 title. 

Hooker Richardt Strauss will also call time on his career at the end of the season, after he made his debut province in 2010.

Leinster head coach Leo Cullen says: “It is hard to articulate the impact that both Isa and Richardt have had on this club since their arrival.

“Warriors on the pitch and wonderful men off it, they are, in my opinion, two of the best players to have ever worn the blue jersey. Their impact on this group of players will be felt for years to come.

It's also been announced that Peader Timmins and Cathal Marsh will also leave Leinster at the end of the season, with all four as well as the already-retired Jamie Heaslip and departing Jordi Murphy being honoured by the province this evening.
