Forced retirement is something that no player wishes to go through, but for St George Illawarra Dragons forward Josh Miller, he was left with no choice – with the Forbes junior making the decision to retire.
His decision came on the back of medical advice from the doctors that he should not play on, forcing the 28-year old to make the difficult decision.
“After meeting with a
few doctors in the off-season, they've decided that I'm not right to continue playing, so I'm retiring,” Miller said.
“I'd just like to thank you guys for all the support over the year I was here and it was an honour to play for this club, and something I will cherish for the rest of my life.”
Miller, who was a Forbes junior, started his career with the Canberra Raiders in 2004, spending 8 seasons in the nation's capital, before his 2012 move to the Dragons.
