It was the inevitable news that we all knew was coming, but it's no less of a blow for it. Andy Goode is hanging up his boots for the final time.
Goode broke the news on Twitter this lunchtime.
I've had a blast! Thanks to everyone at @FalconsRugby but after next weekend the boots will be hung up again! pic.twitter.com/60CeHi3uRp— Andy Goode (@AndyGoode10) March 19, 2016
