    Cape Town - Bulls hooker Bandise Maku, who played one Test for the Springboks, has announced his retirement from rugby.

    The 30-year-old Maku played the majority of his rugby at the Bulls, but also had stints at the Lions and Kings.

    Maku played one Test for the Springboks - against Italy in Witbank in 2010.

    He announced his retirement via his Instagram and Twitter accounts on Wednesday where he thanked his family, friends and team-mates for their support over the years.

    The post read: “Officially retired player,thanks for all the support through the years,especially my family,friends and Wife . A few mentions, to KB and Alice for always making sure I was ready to play and game ready. To all the coaches that have believed in me through selection and support. My agents through the years Anthany Johnson and Dane Galley for always having my interest at heart.To all the sponsors VW Hatfield/ Menlyn,Adidas/Mizuno,Gilbert/Canterbury. Thank you for allowing to be associated with your brands. In the end I was just a kid from EC that wanted to play with his friends. Rugby gave me the opportunity to do that,travel the world,meet new friends and grow as a person. Very content in my decision.Thank you all.”
