He won 54 England caps and played 281 times for Quins, more than any other player in the professional era.

Number eight Easter took on a player-coach role working with Harlequins’ defence in April and will now concentrate on coaching full time.

He played in three World Cups and helped Quins win their first-ever Premiership title in 2012.
