Ian Sibbit announces retirement

Bradford forward Ian Sibbit will hang up his boots at the end of the season.

Sibbit, 31, has made more 180 Super League appearances for Warrington, Salford and the Bulls, and also had a season in the NRL with Melbourne Storm in 2002.

He tweeted: “After 14 years in pro rugby I’ve decided to retire at end of 2012. Made some great friends and loved it.”

The Wigan-born back-rower or centre started his career with the Wolves, before moving Down Under for a year, where he scored three tries in 20 appearances for the Storm.

He returned to Super League with Warrington the following year and moved to Salford at the start of 2005, going on to make more than 100 appearances in a six-year stint with the Reds.

For the past two seasons, he has played for the Bulls, but has been restricted to just four appearances this term.
