The playing career of all players has to come to an end eventually, with only a player to make that decision, and after a long and illustrious career in the world of rugby league, Manly Sea Eagles legend and current Catalans Dragons utility Steve Menzies has announced his retirement from the game.
Menzies, who has played more than 500 games at the top level across the NRL and the English Super League, played for Manly for 16 years and enjoyed successful stints at the Bradford Bulls and the Catalan Dragons.
Although not an easy decision for Menzies to make, the fan favourite is at ease with his decision.
â€œIt was a hard decision to take. Playing rugby league, that’s what I have ever done,” said Menzies.
â€œI’m still enjoying playing and I feel good mentally and physically but Levitra it was the right time to finish. My biggest fear was to play one season too long and I’m happy with my decision. â€œ
Menzies’ achievements are not restricted to club footy, however, with the utility playing in 15 tests for the Kangaroos since 1994 – also holding a mantle that may never be broken as the highest try-scoring forward in the NRL with 180 tries.
So far in his career, Menzies has scored 236 tries in 467 games, with the Catalans CEO was proud that the last jersey Menzies will wear, is a Dragons one.
â€œSteve is a true Legend of the game. He has achieved almost everything it is possible to and it’s a real honor for our club that the last jersey he will wear is the Catalans Dragons one.â€ said Catalans Dragons CEO Christophe Jouffret.
