Jamie Pandaram and Iain Payten discuss the latest rugby news.

Wallabies skipper Stephen Moore will retire from Test rugby at the end of this season.

WALLABIES captain Stephen Moore had made the call to retire when he arrived at camp in Newcastle this week but his decision was confirmed when he hit the training paddock alongside a new kid.

The youngster was Melbourne and Aussie under 20 rookie Jordan Uelese, a highly-rated hooker with a 124kg frame and a promising career ahead.

“It’s the first time I have met him,” Moore said.

“It’s been interesting, it has taken me back to when I first started. I think he is 20 or 21, in his first Wallaby camp.

MOORE: Wallabies skipper calls time on career

“He’s a big unit and I didn’t realise that but when you stand next to him, he’s a big lump of a lad and he is keen to learn.

“When you see someone like that start to emerge, it gives you confidence that the team will be in good hands going forward.”
