Scotland international Moray Low is set to retire from professional rugby at the end of the ongoing Gallagher Premiership season.

Low is currently on a stint with Exeter Chiefs, who will be seen in the play-off against Northampton Saints on 25th May and will be hoping to end his career on a high.

The 34-year-old's association with the Chiefs began in 2014 and has played 70 times for the Sandy Park outfit since then scoring seven tries. He will now set up a property development business ‘Tomahawk Homes’ with former team-mate Julian Salvi.

“Coming to the Chiefs, it’s been fantastic for me,” he told the official website of the club

“I knew when I came down five years ago that the club were going places and that’s certainly been the cases. For me, personally, it’s been great to be part of a great journey, seeing where the club has come from to where it is now.

“At the time, it was a big move for me. I’d had eight great years with Glasgow, so I was coming out of my comfort zone. However, I wanted to play in the Premiership and really challenge myself.

"From day one, it’s been very enjoyable, playing and working alongside some great people, and it’s definitely made me a better player"

Before joining Exeter Chiefs, Low was part of Glasgow Warriors for eight seasons between 2006 and 2014 making 150 appearances and his time with the Scotstoun outfit earned him a Scotland debut in February 2009 against France. Overall, he has featured in 37 Tests for the Dark Blues with his last appearance coming in November 2016.

“To retire now at the end of the season, it’s definitely the right time for me.

"I’m very happy with what I’ve done, what I’ve achieved, and I know the club will continue to move in the right direction in the future.

"We’ve got a number of internationals props - on both sides of the scrum - and behind them we’ve got a really good group of young lads who are coming through.”
