Dogs veteran to retire at season’s end

Sam Perrett

After a storied career, 2016 will be the last one for Sam Perrett as the veteran winger confirms that he will retire at the completion.

With 254 games to date and 90 tries during that time as well as 21 appearances for the New Zealand Kiwis.

With 106 games to date for the Bulldogs, the decision was not an easy one for Perrett but he knew it was the right one.

“It’s been a tough decision and an emotional one, but it’s time for me to hang up the boots,” said Perrett

“This year will be my last season playing rugby league and it’s been such an amazing journey.”

The veteran winger was quick to praise all his team-mates, the coaching staff and fans as he made the announcement.

“I’m so grateful and thankful for the relationships that I have, the teammates I have played alongside and against, the coaching staff that has helped me along the way and my family for everything they’ve gone through,” added Perrett.

“My family has put in a lot of time and sacrifice to support me and it’s time to move onto the next phase of my life, which I’m really excited about.”

Perrett has one final goal in mind, however, and that is to win the premiership with the Bulldogs.

“I’m not aiming for anything less,” said Perrett.

“I’m going to give my best for the last eight weeks and it’s going to be everything I’ve got to get that title.”
