“Heading to Sarries” – Harlequins confirm their full list of leavers

Harlequins have confirmed the seven names set to leave the Club this summer

The Club said in a statement that ‘they would like to thank all seven players for their time in the Famous Quartered jersey as they leave the Club or retire at the end of the season.

Joe Gray

A two-time Premiership winner across two stints and 177 appearances in the Famous Quarters, Joe Gray will hang up his boots as he retires from professional rugby this summer. Establishing himself as an England international during his time with Harlequins, Gray will swap his iconic blue scrum cap for the coaches’ whistle as he takes up his new role as Head Coach of London Scottish following the announcement of a strategic partnership between the Championship club and Quins.

Matt Symons

Announced earlier this season, second-row Symons will retire this summer following a four-year stint with the London club having joined from Premiership rivals Wasps, previously representing London Irish and the Chiefs in New Zealand. Symons moves immediately into a role in central London working in commercial real estate. A key figure in Harlequins Premiership win last season, the lock will long be remembered at The Stoop.
