Almost half of all retirements in professional rugby are due to injury according to the Irish Rugby Union Players Association.
Former Ireland and Leinster rugby player Reggie Corrigan says many are institutionalised by the game and it can take some time to adjust to their new lives once they retire.
He also said that a rugby career in the professional era is now very short and represents quite a small part of a working life.
