London Broncos hooker Chad Randall has announced his retirement from rugby league after not receiving a new contract offer.

The 32-year-old had made 197 appearances for the club before his season was abruptly ended by a hamstring injury in June.

Randall, who joined the Londoners from NRL side Manly Sea Eagles in 2005, has not been offered a new contract and ends his time at the Twickenham Stoop just five games short of the club appearance record which is currently held by Steele Retchless.

"At the start of the year we were definitely talking about doing another year but then my injury came and the club told me they didn't want me," the Australian forward said.

Memories

"If there were another five games in the season I probably could have played. I feel I have been a good servant to the club and I am a loyal guy so I am happy about that. I'll always look back on my time with fond memories."

Randall adds to a long list of players leaving the Broncos as a disappointing Super League season draws to a close.

David Howell, Mark Bryant, Luke Dorn and Chris Melling have all revealed they are leaving the club while Jamie Soward ends his short-term spell and Scott Wheeldon, Chris Bailey, Tony Clubb, Tommy Lee, Dan Sarginson and Michael Witt are also expected to move on.

London Broncos remained rooted at the foot of the Super League standings and play their final home game against leaders Huddersfield Giants on Saturday before taking on away fixtures at Bradford and Hull KR.
