France captain Thierry Dusautoir is targeting carrying on playing until after the 2015 World Cup.
The 30-year-old, named the IRB Player of the Year for 2011, led his side to the brink of success in New Zealand - scoring a try in the agonising 9-8 final defeat to the hosts.
However Dusautoir, who will look to upset the Grand Slam ambitions of Wales at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday, has no plans to hang up his boots just yet.
Dusautoir told L'Equipe: "I know at what age I want to stop and how long I still want to play. One thing is for sure, I will not go on until 38-year-old.
"I would like to go on one year after next WC. But we will first see if I am able to remain in French team until that date. But there is nothing for sure and that is fine.
"I still have big desire to win matches, titles and experience magic moments."
