Worcester Warriors winger Tom Biggs has confirmed his retirement from rugby with immediate effect.
The 33-year-old began his career with Leeds Tykes, winning the Powergen Cup in his debut season, before going on to enjoy spells at Newcastle Falcons and Bath Rugby. He joined Worcester in 2014, helping them to secure promotion to the Aviva Premiership the following year. Tom has also played a key role representing his peers off the field, having been Worcester’s RPA Representative for the past three years.
Tom Biggs, said: “Following medical advice, it is with regret that I am having to retire from professional rugby. After a lengthy rehab process with numerous operations, I had hoped to return to play and am very disappointed that this will not be possible. I used to love playing on a weekend, though not so much on a Monday night. I would have liked to have achieved a bit more, but at least I got to hold a bag at Penny Hill Park a couple of times. Thank you to anyone who has ever helped me and supported me. I have had a lot of fun wherever I’ve played, worked with and met some great people, and been to some amazing places.
RPA Group CEO Damian Hopley, said: “Tom has been a great character on and off the field and a credit to the game for the duration of his career. I would like to place on record particular thanks for his service representing his fellow professionals on the RPA Players’ Board. On behalf of everyone at the RPA, I would like to wish Tom every success as he embarks on the next stage of his career.”
