When a player leaves a club due to extenuating circumstances, it can often be tough – but the St George Illawarra Dragons and prop Michael Henderson have agreed to part ways via mutual consent.
Henderson and the club came to the decision due to several reoccurring injuries for the prop that did not allow him to train or compete at the standards both he and the club expect him to be at.
At just 28, Henderson will not abandon rugby league completely, as he will take up a player role at the Thirroul Butchers, whilst completing an electrical apprenticeship.
“I had a good opportunity come up so I could get my career after football sorted,” said Henderson.
“I’ve had a few groin problems and basically, just the day-to-day training and getting up for games, is becoming a bit hard.”
“This opportunity came up and it was too good to pass up, so I had to make a decision.”
Despite his departure, Henderson what does john benson say about the hcg diet will keep a watchful eye on the club as an observer and a supporter and thanked the club for what they have done for him during his career.
â€œI came down to join the Dragons as a young bloke from Griffith and I had a lot of good times here at the Club,â€ said Henderson.
â€œI met a lot of good people here and enjoyed my time wearing the Red V.
â€œI would like to thank both Head Coach Steve Price and Club CEO Peter Doust for allowing me the opportunity to re-join the Club and for understanding my reasons in leaving.â€
The club support Henderson’s decision and passed on their well wishes to the departing prop.
â€œMichael is a great guy who offered a lot of playing experience in amongst the forward pack,â€ said Price.
â€œI understand that the decision he has made was not an easy one for him and I am thankful for his services to the Club.â€
