Former Manu Samoa prop Census Johnston said he has been a little overwhelmed by well-wishes from friends, fans, family and former teammates after announcing his retirement from professional rugby.

The 39-year-old, who played for Bayonne in the 2019-20 Top 14 before all French sporting seasons were cancelled last week, confirmed he was walking away from the game with posts to his Instagram and Twitter.
