@TIGER said in Matt Gillett announces retirement from rugby league:

I run into him a bit with his wife and kids around my neck of the woods, great guy.
If only most footy players were like him, one of the genuine ones.
Pity his career was cut short.

seems like the whole 16 teams are getting in on this medical retirement, to help them retain or get other players. glad we got ben done before the nrl cracks down on it.
