Sale Sharks wing Mark Cueto has confirmed that the upcoming campaign will be his last in professional rugby after 13 seasons with Sale.
Cueto made his debut against Bristol back in 2001 and last season broke the Premiership try scoring record when he touched down (the 76th try of his career) against Exeter Chiefs.
"I want to score a few more tries, I know Tom Varndell is closing in on my tally," said Cueto.
"I would hate us to be involved in another relegation scrap like last season, we need to get off to a good start this time and hopefully we can finish in the top half of the Premiership and qualify for the Heineken Cup again.
"Winning the Premiership in 2006 was undoubtedly the best moment for me at club level.
"Playing in a World Cup Final ranks high too (and yes it was a try!). Playing for the Lions in New Zealand was a great achievement too. I only got a late call after Iain Balshaw pulled out so to make the starting 15 in a test was special.
"I would really like to get involved in broadcasting. I have done a lot of radio work over the last 12 months for BBC Five Live.
"It's great for me as Media City is so close to the training ground. I have also been a guest on ESPN's coverage and hopefully will get invited to join in with the BT coverage. BT are really going to make people sit up and take notice of the sport."
Asked whether he had considered playing at a lower level beyond this season, Cueto confirmed that he would be retiring from all rugby after Sale's last match.
"No chance, when I walk off after the last game that's it. I have already had the call from Altrincham Kersal," he concluded.
