Chief Thomas to go from player to coach

The Rugby Paper - - Results -

EX­ETER’S long-stand­ing scrum-half Haydn Thomas con­firmed he will be re­tir­ing from play­ing at the end of the sea­son to take up a coach­ing role in the club’s academy.

The 34-year-old, who made 211 ap­pear­ances for the Chiefs, said: “I’ve had 16 years of pro­fes­sional rugby and it’s nice to be able to fin­ish your ca­reer on your own terms.

“What I’ve achieved, es­pe­cially here at the Chiefs, is some­thing I’m very proud of.”
