Thomas Leuluai made his last appearance as a rugby league player in New Zealand’s World Cup warm-up game on Saturday afternoon.
The 37-year-old will now take up a coaching role with Wigan Warriors next season after announcing his retirement.
Here are some of the best pictures from his final outing as a player:
