  |   Rugby

Australia prop Sekope Kepu said on Monday he will retire from international rugby after the World Cup in Japan, bringing the curtain down on a Wallabies career that has brought him more than 100 Test caps.

Kepu became just the ninth Australian Test centurion when he played world champions New Zealand in Yokohama last year, and the nation's first prop to reach the milestone.

He will be honoured with a farewell ceremony in front of home fans after the Wallabies' final World Cup warm-up against Samoa in Sydney on Saturday.

"Its going to very special," Kepu said in a media release. "Its another massive challenge and something Im definitely looking forward to, running out in front of family and friends as well as our home fans for the last time this year.

"I never thought I would have achieved that milestone and to have done so, its something that makes me feel very privileged and fortunate."
