Harlequins star retires from rugby aged 30

Harlequins have confirmed 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.
