Corry calls it quits

Former England forward Martin Corry has announced his retirement from the game.

Corry has been struggling with various injuries this season and has decided to retire. However, he will be up for selection for the Leicester Tigers’ couple of finals in the Premiership and European Cup in the upcoming weekends.

‘If it was down to heart and mind I’d love to continue playing,’ said Corry. ‘But unfortunately I have taken specialist medical advice and my body has said that is it.

‘If I can get on the field in the last two games then great. But I don’t think Cockers [Leicester coach Richard Cockerill] and sentiment go hand in hand.

‘If I deserve it great but I don’t want a bit of charity at the end.’
