Castres full-back Romain Teulet has announced that he will retire at the end of the season, bringing his remarkable career to an end.

Castres full-back Romain Teulet has announced that he will retire at the end of the season, bringing his remarkable career to an end.

The 5ft 5 back has scored an astonishing 3256 points for Castres since joining back in 2001.

Nicknamed 'Robocop' after his kicking style, the 36-year-old's record points haul will take some beating.

Teulet has played at scrum-half and fly-half for Castres but operated mainly as a full-back in recent years.

He came off the bench during last year's Top 14 triumph over Toulon and also lifted the Challenge Cup with Castres back in 2003.

Teulet is reportedly set to stay on with the club in a role off the field that is yet to be confirmed.
