23 October: Waldrom hangs up the boots

Four-time New Zealand-born England international Thomas Waldrom has announced his retirement from rugby at 35. The Avalon loose forward this year spent one final season with home province Wellington after eight fruitful years in England playing for Leicester Tigers and Exeter Chiefs. Nicknamed Thomas 'the Tank Engine', Waldrom on Monday revealed he was hanging up his boots, saying it was a hard decision to call time on a professional career spanning 17 years. Waldrom, who played four tests for England from 2012-13, started (2001-09) and finished (2018) with Wellington after stints with Hawke's Bay (2009-10), the Hurricanes (2004-08) and the Crusaders (2009-10). Read more here
