Jordan Turner-Hall announces retirement

Harlequins and former English international centre Jordan Turner-Hall has today announced his retirement from professional rugby due to injury.

Commenting on the news, Jordan said: “Overall I’ve had so many great memories playing at Harlequins and although my career has sadly had to be cut short due to injury, they are memories that will live with me forever.

“Playing with your best mates week in week out is what makes playing for Harlequins brilliant; you enjoy training and you enjoy the buzz that you get before each game and it’s something I’ll miss hugely.”

The Camden-born one club man began his career at Hove RFC, before joining the Harlequins Academy in 2005.
 
At just 17, Jordan made his senior debut against Birmingham and Solihull Bees in, the then, National One. Quickly establishing himself as an invaluable midfield player, he helped the Club to promotion in 2006.

Developing into one of the most powerful and destructive centres in the Premiership, he played a pivotal role in the back to back victories against Stade Francais during the 2008/09 Heineken Cup campaign.

His electric form domestically saw him named as 2009’s Land Rover Discovery of the season.
 
During his ten year career, he made over 150 appearances for the Club, winning silverware with the Amlin Challenge Cup and the Aviva Premiership.
 
Having represented his country from U16 to U20 level and playing in England’s uncapped fixture against The Barbarians at Twickenham in 2010, Jordan was named in Stuart Lancaster’s England squad for the 2012 Six Nations.
 
Earning two Test caps during the victories over Scotland and Italy, he was recalled into the squad to tour South Africa later that year.
 
Harlequins Director of Rugby Conor O’Shea added: “Jordan has been a very special person to have around the Club and will be missed by us all both on and off the pitch.

“He has played at times with no regard for himself, but always for the team and I know everyone in the Club will support him in whatever his future holds.”

Off the field, Jordan is hugely respected among his peers and supporters, a true squad member and an inspirational mentor to younger members of the squad; his day to day presence around the Club will be missed by all associated with Harlequins.
