Wallabies veteran Drew Mitchell took to Twitter on Monday night, officially announcing his retirement from the game.

13 years after making his Super Rugby debut with the Queensland Reds, the Toulouse winger will retire at the end of the French Top 14 season.

Standing as Australia's most prolific World Cup try scorer after reaching 14 during the England tournament in 2015, Mitchell will pull down the curtain on a career that included representing Queensland, the Western Force and NSW Waratahs before joining French club Toulon in 2013.

Mitchell finishes as Australia's fourth most-prolific try-scorer with 34 tries from his 71 Tests and couldn't be happier with his time in the game.

“I’ve loved every opportunity I’ve had in the game, but I think when your time comes, your time comes,” Mitchell told foxsports.com.au

Former teammates and opponents paid tribute to the Wallaby veteran on Twitter after the announcement was made.
