  • [rugby-union]DEACON FORCED TO QUIT
    Leicester flanker Brett Deacon, older brother of England lock Louis, has been forced to retire due to a debilitating blood condition. His last game for the Tigers was against Wasps in April en route to their Aviva Premiership title victory.

    I've had a very enjoyable career and it is disappointing when the decision to stop playing is taken out of your hands but I have to go with the medical advice. Every young player growing up in the area wants to play for Leicester Tigers and I was fortunate enough to be able to do that, and to play for the club alongside my brother.
