Paris - Bayonne's experienced French international wing/fullback Cedric Heymans said Saturday he is to retire at the end of this season.

"I feel it's time to call it a day," said Heymans, who was capped 59 times by France and will be 35 in July.

Heymans made his name at Toulouse, where he was part of a team that won two French league titles (2008, 2011) and three European Cups (2003, 2005, 2010).

The backline player arrived at Bayonne in 2011 after 10 years at Toulouse, having previously played for Agen (1997-2001) and Brive (1995-1997).

With Les Bleus, Heymans won three Six Nations tournaments (2004, 2006, 2007) and also took part in two World Cups (2007, 2011).
