DAVE LEWIS TO RETIRE FROM RUGBY
« on: Thursday 23-May-2019, 11:08* »
SCRUM-HALF MADE 28 APPEARANCES FOR HARLEQUINS AFTER JOINING FROM EXETER CHIEFS

Harlequins can announce that scrum-half Dave Lewis will retire from professional rugby.

Lewis joined Harlequins ahead of the 2017/18 season from Exeter Chiefs, after helping them secure both Premiership and Anglo-Welsh titles the previous season.

He went on to make his debut in the quartered shirt against Northampton Saints in September 2017 and made 28 appearances in total for the Club. He scored his first try for Quins in the win against Scarlets at The Stoop the following January in the Anglo-Welsh Cup.

Born in Manchester, Lewis originally progressed through the Exeter Chiefs Academy system and went on to join Gloucester Rugby in 2007. During his six years with the Cherry and Whites, he made 88 appearances, before returning to Exeter in 2013.

In January 2014, he represented England Saxons against the Irish Wolfhounds, at Kingsholm.

After leaving Harlequins, Lewis will begin his new career as a Financial Advisor with London-based firm Castell Wealth Management.

Speaking on his retirement, Lewis said: I am grateful to all the coaches, conditioners, physios and Club staff who have helped me play the sport I love for so long. I would also like to thank my family, especially my partner Rach and daughter Olivia and my parents for their continued and unwavering support in helping me live my dream of being a professional rugby player.
Though ultimately Im sad to leave the game, Im really looking forward to starting my new role. Its something Ive been working towards for a while and Im excited for what the future holds.

Harlequins Head of Rugby Paul Gustard added: Dave is an incredible professional who always gives his best. He is a keen thinker of the game and has added significant value on and off the pitch. I know that whatever he chooses to do in life he will be a success as he works hard, is humble and is an all-round great guy.

Id like to thank Dave for his service on behalf of the Club over the past two seasons and wish him and his family all the best for the next chapter in their story.

Best of luck to him.

I do find it a little odd that a two-season man gets more of a send-off than some of the longer serving stalwarts who got a cursory group message.

I think that the message is different when people are retiring (rather than just leaving).
When retiring, the club lists the player's history, etc.

Not quite retired. Just seen Rosslyn Parks Chairman's message and he's playing for them this season. Along with Henry Cheeseman and Sam Twoomy
