Nick Easter, the 37 year old player for Harlequins, decided to quit playing the game in order to coach the side full time.
He could not spend quality time on both coaching and playing for the Harlequins and hence decided to call it quits in July. Now, that he is relieved from being a player in the side, he can coach the team well and that too full time. Nick had accepted the role of being a player-coach of the team in April this year and was in charge of the defense.
Easter took this decision of quitting the game and being a full time coach as he felt that he could not do justice to either of the jobs at the same time. He got some time to think about his career when director of rugby of Quins, John Kingston, gave hi the dual role. He was also an England rugby international and last appeared for his country in the 2015 World Rugby Cup.
