“I’ve enjoyed every minute of my career and I’ve been lucky enough to play for my state, to represent my people at the World Cup, and to have had the feeling of winning a premiership.

“I’ve been lucky enough to play with some wonderful players over the past 14 years and I’ve met a lot of great people, some of whom will be friends for life.

“I still have this season to finish off and I will give my all for the Rabbitohs on the field over these remaining games, and then I can focus on life after football.”
