Dusautoir led France to the RBS 6 Nations Grand Slam in 2010 starting every game in the back row and, a year later, won the domestic Top 14 title with club side Toulouse where he has made over 200 appearances since 2006.
The 35-year-old Frenchman leaves behind memories of his bustling, carrying style of back-row play. Never taking a backwards step and a relentless breakdown operator, he has certainly been a tremendous servant to
French rugby throughout his 80 appearances.
Dusautoir made his final RBS 6 Nations appearance in the 2015 RBS 6 Nations Championship, a 55-35 defeat to England at Twickenham Stadium.
But Dusautoir still has three more weeks to play club rugby in Toulouse and will hope to end the season on a high as he draws the curtain on an illustrious career.
