Catalans Dragons winger Pat Richards will retire at the end of the season.
Richards started his career at Parramatta in 2000 before moving to the Wests Tigers in 2004, where he won the 2005 Premiership title.
After 76 NRL appearances and 40 tries, he decided to join Wigan in 2006.
He was awarded Man of Steel Award in 2010, when he finished as the season’s top point scorer with 434 points.
He has scored nine tries and 174 points this season in 19 appearances under the Catalans jersey.
Catalans Dragons head coach Laurent Frayssinous said: “I’m disappointed to see a so great player, with so much class on and off the field, hanging up his boots.
“He is and has always been respected by his team-mates and opponents.
“Our sport is losing a great player and we would like to wish him, his wife Kim and Kids Aidan and Brianna all the best for this new chapter in their life.
“As a team, it’s an extra motivation to finish the season as high as possible to offer him the end he deserves.”
Club CEO Christophe Jouffret added: “We would like to emphasise the honesty of this great player who has decided to refuse the last season on his contract.
“Pat has been an amazing player in the two best rugby league competitions and he is among the greatest players to have worn the Catalans jersey. We wish him all the best.”
