St George Illawarra Dragons forward Jeremy Latimore will retire from professional rugby league at the end of the 2019 NRL season.
The 32-year-old prop has played 177 NRL games to date for the Dragons, Parramatta Eels, New Zealand Warriors, Penrith Panthers and Cronulla Sharks.
Latimore – who made a solitary appearance for Australia Prime Minister’s XIII in 2015 – admitted he will probably continue playing at a much lower level than the NRL next year.
He said: “I’ve been thinking about [retirement] for a couple of weeks now, and I feel now is the right time to go out for myself and my family.
“I’ve had a ball and I really love this Dragons club but unfortunately all good things have to come to an end.
“I’ll definitely be heading into mortgage broking so if anyone out there needs a loan, you know where to come!
“I’ll probably keep playing footy in the Wollongong comp too; it’ll help me get my footy fix as I haven’t lost my love for the game.”
