Wakefield Trinity have confirmed that Scott Anderson is set to retire at the end of the season.
The 30-year-old joined Trinity from Brisbane Broncos in 2014, on an initial one-year deal, and has made 44 appearances for the Wildcats.
A number of injuries over the years have taken their toll on the prop’s body, however.
“It has been one of the hardest decisions I have ever had to make but it is the right time for me to retire,” he said.
“I have had a few injuries these past couple of years which have set me back, and it is time I listen to what my body is telling me.
“Rugby has been part of my life since I was seven years old and I haven’t really known anything else, it is going to be a big void in my life.
“I would like to say a huge thank you to Wakefield. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here, it is a great club with some fantastic supporters and I wish them all the best for next season.
“I am looking forward to going back home and spending some time with my family and establish myself before I start looking for work.”
