Jamie Lyon to retire

Manly centre Jamie Lyon will hang up his boots at the end of the 2016 NRL season.

Lyon has had a glittering career in both Australia and England with the Sea Eagles and St Helens.

He broke into the NRL with Parramatta in 2000 and played for Australia at just 19 years of age.

Lyon controversially left the Eels in 2004 and ended up at Saints, spending two seasons in Super League where he won the Man of Steel award, the Challenge Cup and the 2006 grand final.

The centre joined Manly in 2007 and played in four grand finals with the Sea Eagles, winning titles in 2008 and 2013. He was also part of Parramatta’s 2011 NRL grand final side.

The 34-year old has scored 164 tries in 345 career games, with 717 goals and a points haul of 2090.

He played for Australia eight times and for NSW on 10 occasions.
