The Australian-born Scotland forward Nathan Hines has announed his retirement from international rugby after 11 years in the Test arena.

Hines, who's 34, only came to Scotland for a six-month stay in 1998 but ended up winning 77 caps.

During that time he helped Scotland beat every major Test-playing nation, except for New Zealand, and also won selection for the 2009 British and Irish Lions.
