Australian veteran Sharpe to retire

Australian second rower and 101-test veteran Nathan Sharpe says he will retire from competitive rugby at the end of the upcoming Super 15 season.
Sharpe, who turns 34 this month, said Friday he wanted to end speculation about his future and ensure his focus was only on helping his Western Force team to make the playoffs for the first time.
Sharpe is tied for fourth as the most-capped Wallabies player, behind George Gregan, George Smith and Stephen Larkham and equal with David Campese.
He debuted in 2002 and was still in the Wallabies ranks last year, playing at the World Cup in New Zealand.
