Ex world under-20 champion Paul Jordaan announced his retirement from rugby on Friday at the age of 28 to rear Kalahari goats on his family farm in his native South Africa.
Centre Jordaan lifted the world title in 2012 with the Junior Springboks on home soil before moving to La Rochelle in France four years later where he scored 10 tries in 46 appearances.
“I am done. I have decided that it is time to hang up my boots and start my life after rugby,” he told SA Rugby magazine.
“We farm with sheep and goats. We have a couple of Kalahari red goats and we also have a hunting trip business with American clients,” he added.
“I feel like I have left rugby on my own terms. I was not forced out of rugby, I have done it on my own terms and I am now doing something that I really love. So, it actually hasn’t been that tough.”
