Meyers forced to retire due to injury

It is never a fun feeling having to retire due to injury, but for Titans forward Brad Meyers, he has had no choice but to do so, after requiring surgery on an injured wrist.

Meyers, 31, made the decision to retire today, after he received confirmation that undergoing surgery on his injured wrist would keep him out for the rest of the season.

Despite retirement however, Meyers had a stellar NRL career, winning two premierships, and having the chance to represent both his state QLD, and his country, Australia.

For Titans coach John Cartwright, he sees Meyers as a part of the Titans first-generation of players, that helped to get the ball rolling for them.

“Red (Meyers) was our inaugural clubman of the year so that says a lot about what he has been able to bring to the club both on and off the field,” said Cartwright.

“He had a serious knee injury in our first season but to able to come back and play 75 first grade games for the club is a big effort.

“It’s disappointing that it has to end but he’s had a great career.”

Michael Searle, the Titans CEO, also paid tribute to Meyers, highlighting his illustrious career, as a reason to hold his head up high, despite his retirement.

“Sometimes it’s disappointing when injuries get in the way of players longevity but Brad’s had a great career so he’s got nothing to be sad about,” said Searle.

“We brought him back from England to be part of our inaugural season and he has been a great contributor to what the club has been able to achieve since.”
