Star centre Gedis Marcisauskas will play his last game for Peterborough Lions tomorrow (November 28).
The Lithuanian international has decided to return home to Lithuania for family reasons and tomorrow’s National League Division Three clash with Bromsgrove at Bretton Park (2.15pm kick-ff) will be his farewell appearance for the Lions.
When he first came to Peterborough 15 years ago he joined Peterborough Rugby Club and was a key member of their side that won three promotions to reach National League level.
Lions chairman Andy Moore said: “Gedis has been a great servant to Peterborough rugby on both sides of the city - both for us and over at Fengate. We shall be very sorry to see him go. He’s been a fantastic player for us and he’s a very popular bloke in the dressing room as well.
“Let’s hope we can make his farewell appearance a winning one.”
Marcisauskas’s Lithuanian team-mate Marius Andrijauskas won’t be playing for the Lions tomorrow. He’s been ruled out with a back injury and hooker Jack Laws will also be absent because of bruised ribs.
