Rugby: The Wallabies have entered into training camp with one goal in mind – to lift the Bledisloe for the first time since 2001.

Stephen Moore will step down as a Wallabies captain and player at the end of 2017.

WALLABIES captain Stephen Moore has announced he will retire from international rugby at the end of the year and cleared the way for Michael Hooper to take over by stepping down as Test skipper immediately.

Though contracted to the ARU and the Queensland Reds until 2019, Moore has decided to pull up stumps well before the next Rugby World Cup.

The 34-year-old will play on for the Reds for one more season in 2018 before hanging up his boots entirely.

Moore made the decision this week while training in Newcastle with the Wallabies and informed his teammates at a team dinner on Wednesday night.
