Scottish international Dan Parks, who played for Scotland at flyhalf this weekend in their defeat to England, has retired from international rugby with immediate effect.
The 33-year old has playes 67 test for the Scots, and will now focus on playing for his Welsh side, the Cardiff Blues.
Parks was partly responsible for the only English try, after his kick was charged down by his opposite number, Charlie Hodgson, and lead to the English beating them 13 – 6.
Parks claims to have been considering retirement since he was second choice at the 2011 Rugby World Cup, where he was behind Ruaridh Jackson.
Greig Laidlaw will most likely be Parks’ replacement for the Scotland match against Wales on Sunday.Tweet
