Ex-England forward Johnson retires

1:49 PM BST

Exeter forward Tom Johnson has retired from rugby, following a decade with the Aviva Premiership champions.

Former England forward Johnson was part of the side that won promotion from the Championship in 2010, and became the first Exeter player for 30 years to win an England cap in 2012.

He went on to play eight times for his country.

“I have been very lucky to be part of the Chiefs during some very special years,” he said.

“Personally, I’ve gone from the Championship to playing for my country and then being part of a squad that’s just won the Premiership.

“Not too many can say they’ve done that, so I’m very proud of that.”

Johnson played for Reading and Coventry before joining Exeter, and will now concentrate on his work as a personal trainer.
