After a long NRL career, Parramatta Eels forward Beau Scott has opted to hang up the boots.
The retirement comes on the back of an ACL injury that the veteran forward sustained earlier this year.
Making his debut back in 2005 for the Cronulla Sharks, Scott also had stints with the St George Illawarra Dragons and the Newcastle Knights.
Joining the Eels in 2016, Scott has done it all in his 244-game career; winning a premiership and representing both NSW and Australia.
“I feel privileged to have played the great game of rugby league professionally for the past fourteen years, and I’m grateful for the opportunities and experiences that have come with it,” said Scott.
“I would like to thank all of the players, coaches and support staff who I have been associated with throughout my career,” continued the veteran forward.
“I’d like to acknowledge and thank all the fans and members who have supported me over such a long period.”
An experienced, tenacious and tough competitor, coach Brad Arthur praised Scott for his time with the Eels.
“Beau is one of the most experienced members of the Parramatta Eels squad, he has always given his best, and he’ll be sorely missed,” said Arthur.
