London Irish Sees Two Players Retire This Season

05 Aug 2016

The team will be seeing Fenby and Guest retiring from active roles on the field.

Both players had different roles, being a winger and a back row player for the team. Tom Guest who used to play as back row has announced that he would want to retire from his role in professional rugby. As a result he would be ending a career that has spanned about 14 years. Guest, who is 31 years of age, came on board Irish in 2014. He had played about 12 seasons with Harlequins team where he helped the team to win the European Rugby challenge cup, LV Cup as well as Aviva Premiership. He has had about 200 appearances for the outfit at Twickenham. He even represented the team of England Saxons. With such a glittering career he admits that it was not an easy choice to announce his retirement.

Guest feels that he has gained a lot of experiences during his professional playing career that will remain in his memory for a long time. For the two years he has been with London Irish he has been proud to be associated with a club that is known for its tradition and history. He feels that Irish will soon regain its former position among the top playing teams in the continent. The management team of London Irish wished him the best as he moves ahead and would be pursuing other opportunities in his life now.

Andrew Fenby on the other hand, is a qualified charter accountant who would be retiring at the early age of thirty from professional rugby to pursue other ambitions in his life. He has a sum total of 126 tries that he achieved in 214 games. He joined Exiles in 2013 and became a favorite among the fans. He was considered one of the top try scorers for the club.
