London Wasps and former England stalwart Josh Lewsey plans to retire from the game at end of the season.
In ten seasons with the double Heineken Cup champions the 32-year-old utility back has collected four Premiership titles, two domestic cups, a European Challenge Cup in 2003 and two Heineken Cup medals in 2004 and 2007. He has lined-out for the Londoners 259 times scoring 385 points for the Wasps to-date and was awarded an ERC Elite Award for 50 Heineken Cup caps.
Lewsey isn't planning on going away quietly and is still chasing a Heineken Cup place for Wasps next season with four rounds and would also love to add to his three British and Irish Lions test appearances during this summer's Tour to South Africa.
The directors of ERC voted unanimously at a Board meeting to postpone all decisions including the release of further instalments of ERC's distributable central revenues to the six shareholder countries until 19 February next when the Board will meet again to reconsider the issue.
