Tipperary Native Trevor Hogan Forced To Retire

Leinster’s Rugby second-row Trevor Hogan has been forced to retire from the game because of a knee injury.

The 31-year-old Tipperary native, who was capped four times for Ireland over a seven-year professional career, has finally had to give up, following medical advice.

Trevor, who attended Nenagh CBS and Dublin City University, played with Nenagh Ormond, Dublin University and Blackrock College RFC before joining Shannon RFC in 2002, whom, the latter, he helped to victory in the All-Ireland League.

Trevor made his first start for Munster in 2003, where he went on to win 57 caps, 5 in the Heineken Cup. While at Munster, he won his first Irish cap in 2005 against Japan during the Lions Tour.

He since went on to win 3 caps for the National side, to win 23 caps, including 7 Heineken cup caps, scoring 2 tries in the process.

He played for Munster until 2006, before joining Leinster in the 2006 season, and was part of the squad which won the Magner’s League in 2007-08 and the Heineken Cup the following year.

Injury severely hampered his involvement with Leinster this season, and his last game was against Dragons in November last. In all, he has made fifty nine appearances for the province, on top of fifty seven appearances for Munster

He has cited his decision to retire from rugby, at all levels, on forced medical grounds, caused by persistent knee injuries over the last number of years.
