Cape Town - Former Springbok and Bulls forward Danie Rossouw is set to call time on his illustrious career.

The 36-year-old lock/loose forward currently plies his trade with French Top 14 giants Toulon.

He told French newspaper La Provence that he'll retire at the end of the current European season.

Rossouw has suffered from osteoarthritis in recent times but returned to action in February after four months out.

During his career, Rossouw has collected three Currie Cup titles, three Super Rugby titles, a World Cup title, a Tri-Nations title and a series win over the British & Irish Lions.

Toulon have made it through to the Heineken Cup final, where they will face Saracens at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium on May 24, while they could also be in the French Top 14 final a week later.
