Melbourne - Former Wallabies hooker Adam Freier is retiring from rugby after an injury-affected career with three Australian Super Rugby sides.

The 32-year-old Freier suffered a calf muscle injury in the Melbourne Rebels' loss to the Lions in Johannesburg last weekend, keeping him out of the season-ending match against the Stormers in Cape Town on Saturday.

Freier confirmed his retirement on Twitter on Friday, saying: "About time Peter Pan step out of this Never Never Rugby Land. My fairytale has come to an end."

Freier started his career with the Brumbies before moving to the Waratahs, then Melbourne, where injuries limited him to just 12 games in two seasons.

He played 16 Tests for Australia, starting in 2002 against Argentina.
