One-Test All Blacks lock James Broadhurst has retired at the age of 29 because of the ongoing effects of concussion.

The Hurricanes forward called time on his 71-match career after failing to shake off the impact of a blow to his head 18 months ago.

He said it was difficult to be advised by medical experts to walk away from the sport he loves but accepts it is the right advice for his own wellbeing.
