The former French number eight Sébastien Chabal says this rugby season is likely to be his last.

Chabal is currently playing for Lyon in the French second division.

Famous for his long hair, beard and power, Chabal won 62 caps for his country.

The 36-year-old says his body is starting to suffer.

Chabal last played for France in 2011.
