Harlequins hooker Max Crumpton forced to retire through injury

Following an eight-year professional career the Quins hooker will retire with immediate effect after sustaining a career-ending hamstring injury during Harlequins’ Heineken Cup fixture away to Bath this season.


A graduate of the Saracens Academy, Crumpton’s career started in 2012 with the North London side, subsequently signing for Plymouth Albion before a first stint with Harlequins on loan during the 2013/14 season. The front row later signed for Bristol Bears, amassing 51 appearances for the West Country side over a four-year period.


Crumpton said: “I think every player dreams of having that fairy-tale finish to their playing career. While I haven’t had the opportunity to sign off from my time as a professional rugby player in front of a crowded Stoop, I’m immensely proud of what I achieved in nearly a decade as a professional athlete."
