Leicester-born Brett Deacon made 135 first-team appearances in two spells with Tigers before joining the coaching staff.
An England international hooker at age-group level, he captained England Under-19s during 2001/02 and then partnered older brother Louis in the second row on his senior debut for the club in 2003, becoming only the second pair of brothers to do so, following Mark and Paul Grant in 1994.
After junior rugby, Brett graduated from the Tigers academy and spent six seasons in the senior squad, making more than 120 appearances in the back row. Included in the matchday 22 for Finals of the Premiership, Anglo-Welsh Cup and European Cup in the 2006/07 season, he captained Tigers against the Classic All Blacks at Welford Road in 2008 and played in the historic win over world champions South Africa before joining Gloucester.
After two seasons at Kingsholm, he returned to his hometown club in 2012/13 and continued to play an important part in the squad before announcing his retirement at the end of that year.
Brett took up a coaching role with the academy and development squad, moving into the senior coaching team with a focus on defence in the second half of the 2016/17 season following the departure of director of rugby Richard Cockerill.
