Gregan may have played last game

George Gregan admitted that the 20-17 World Cup final defeat by England may have been his last game for Australia.

The 30-year-old halfback said he was going to take time out and enjoy a holiday before deciding whether to continue playing at international level.

Gregan must make himself available for internationals if he wants to re-sign with the ACT Brumbies.

"I'm going to take pleasure in unpacking my bag, chilling out and then make a decision," said Gregan, who is the world's most capped halfback.

"For the young players they will go round again and hopefully they will experience the thrill of winning it next time."

Gregan is the lone survivor from the Wallabies side that was knocked out of the 1995 World Cup by a Rob Andrew drop goal, and he and Stephen Larkham are the only two starters remaining from the successful 1999 campaign.

Under fire throughout the year for some mediocre form, Gregan said he was proud of his players.

"Obviously everyone is disappointed but there is a mixture of pride.

"It was a gutsy effort from everyone, it came down to the last play in extra time and as a captain that is all you can ask from a team."

He said England had fully deserved their victory.
