Rob Elloway: Cornish Pirates' former Germany hooker to retire
Cornish Pirates' former Germany international Rob Elloway will retire from professional rugby at the end of the season.
Hooker Elloway joined the Pirates from Gloucester in 2007 and played 229 times for the Penzance-based club.
He played twice for the German national team, and spent time on loan at London Welsh in the Premiership in 2015.
"With a two-year-old and another on the way in July, I want to spend more time with my wife and children," he said.
"I feel excited to start the next chapter in my life and keen to find a role where my positive nature and enthusiasm will make a difference."
