Stalwart half-back Morgan Parra said Tuesday he will leave Clermont at the end of the season after 13 years at the Top 14 giants.

The goal-kicking 33-year-old, capped 71 times by France, hinted he might be headed for pastures new.

“The club offered me a two-year deal and a reconversion into the sporting management,” he said. “It has never been a question of money in my thinking.”

Parra, a scrum-half by predilection, added that it was “his last chance to know and live another form of rugby”.

He was part of the France team that won the 2010 Six Nations Grand Slam and reached the final of the 2011 Rugby World Cup, as well as being a member of the Clermont team that won two French league titles (2010, 2017) and were thrice European Cup runners-up (2013, 2015, 2017).
