Rugby League legend Steve Menzies announced via social media outlet Twitter that he will retire from rugby league at the end of the current Super League season.
@SteveMenzies11 I am officially retiring at the end of this year. Thank you to everyone that has followed Rugby League & allowed me to travel all over the world playing a sport I love for the last 20yrs. Without you all this wouldn’t have been possible. I will truly miss playing this great game!
Currently playing for the Catalan Dragons based in the south of France, the former NSW and Kangaroos star will end his career in October just two months before turning 40.
Menzies made his debut with the Manly Sea Eagles in 1993. Over the next 16 years he played 280 games and crossed the line to score 180 tries.
He featured for the Blues in the State of Origin series 20 times and on the Blues jersey for 20 State of Origin clashes and won 19 Test caps for Australia.
