Scotland's David Denton Retires from Rugby After Concussion Battle


Scotland forward David Denton has been forced to retire from rugby on the advice of doctors.

The 29-year-old decided to hang up his boots after being told he would be risking his long-term health after an 11-month concussion battle.

Denton, who won the last of his 42 caps for Scotland in Argentina last summer, told The Times: "I have had this thing hanging over me for a long time now.

"Since the injury I have woken up every morning with pressure in my head and visual disturbances and not really knowing what is going on.

"Pretty much for that whole time I've been assuming that next week I will be better.

"Every time I tried to go through the comeback protocol, I'd fail. I've tried everything but nothing's worked."
