London Irish full-back Tom Homer is retiring from the sport with immediate effect following the conclusion of the 2020/21 season.
Homer, who made 126 appearances and scored 785 points for the Exiles across two stints with the Club, has decided that it’s the right time for him to hang up his boots.
Tom had agreed a move to French side US Montalbanaise but has since decided his future is away from the rugby field.
“I suppose my love for life is now beyond the rugby field,” explained Homer.
“I’ve played rugby for 13 years now and have some brilliant memories, but it just feels like the right time to retire.
“There is something poetic about finishing at the Club where it all started. I’m looking forward to the next adventure.”
