A full statement from Pat McCabe can be found below.
“It has truly been an honour to represent the Brumbies and the Wallabies over the past 5 years.
While my playing career has not ended the way I would have liked, I consider myself extremely fortunate.
Fortunate to have met and shared experiences with special players and coaches.
Fortunate to have played against opposition from around the world representing my country and province.
And fortunate to walk away from the game with life changing friendships and memories.
While the next chapter of my life is both exciting and terrifying in equal measure, I know that the lessons I have learnt in rugby will serve me well.
It is an incredible game, has given me so much more than I could have ever dreamed and I will miss it immensely.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who has made it such a special journey.”
