Wakefield Trinity Wildcats prop Scott Anderson will retire at the end of the season.
Anderson, 30, joined the Wildcats back in 2014 from NRL side Brisbane Broncos on a one-year contract.
He made his debut against Salford in February 2014 and has gone on to make 44 appearances.
His career has been blighted by injury and has just returned to the Wildcats squad after two months out with a back problem.
Anderson said: "It has been one of the hardest decisions I have ever had to make but it is the right time for me to retire.
"I have had a few injuries these past couple of years which have set me back, and it is time I listen to what my body is telling me.
"Rugby has been part of my life since I was seven years old and I haven't really known anything else, it is going to be a big void in my life.
"I would like to say a huge thank you to Wakefield. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here, it is a great club with some fantastic supporters and I wish them all the best for next season.
"I am looking forward to going back home and spending some time with my family and establish myself before I start looking for work.
