Hodgson savouring final moments

Force veteran Matt Hodgson is making the most of his final moments with the side ahead of their clash with the Waratahs on Saturday.

With the Force unable to qualify for the play-offs, the match will be Hodgson’s last as he hangs up his boots at the end of the season.

Hodgson has played a club-record 139 games for the Force, notched 11 caps for the Wallabies, and become a respected figurehead in Australian rugby.

Ironically, his last game comes against the Waratahs, the side he started his career with. However, injury prevented him from making a Super Rugby appearance for the Sydney-based side.

When asked about his plans for after the game, Hodgson told the Canberra Times: “We’re all catching up for a few drinks for the next six months.

“That will be pretty exciting – actually stopping.

“I’m pretty excited. I’m enjoying every moment I get to be out with the boys.

“It probably won’t hit me until that final hooter goes.”
