Harlequins and England centre Jordan Turner-Hall has been forced to retire from rugby at the age of 27 due to injury.
Turner-Hall has spent his entire playing career with Quins, clocking up 181 appearances for the club since joining their academy in 2005.
However, the Camden-born player, who last month was charged with GBH following a nightclub incident in October, was hampered by injuries last year and only made four full appearances for the Aviva Premiership club.
"Overall I’ve had so many great memories playing at Harlequins and although my career has sadly had to be cut short due to injury, they are memories that will live with me forever," Turner-Hall told Harlequins website.
"Playing with your best mates week in week out is what makes playing for Harlequins brilliant; you enjoy training and you enjoy the buzz that you get before each game and it’s something I’ll miss hugely."
Turner-Hall made his debut for Harlequins at 17 and quickly made his mark as an invaluable midfield player, helping the club win promotion in 2006.
He represented his country for the U16 and U20 sides and earned his two seniors caps in the Six Nations in 2012.
"Jordan has been a very special person to have around the club and he will be missed by us all both on and off the pitch," Quins director rugby Conor O’Shea added.
"He has played at times with no regard for himself, but always for the team and I Know everyone in the club will support him in whatever his future holds."
