Karl Fitzpatrick has played his last game for Salford City Reds and is planning a new career in rugby union.

He was hoping to bring the curtain down on his eight-year stint at The Willows against Wakefield on Sunday week but a wrist injury has brought a premature end to his season and possibly his rugby league career.

Now he is about to take up an offer from Preston Grasshoppers as full-time strength and conditioning coach.


Fitzpatrick was always a decent player in an appauling Salford setup, but injuries have blighted his career.

Sad way to leave the game.

Fitzpatrick has been an excellent full-back and a loyal servant to Salford over the years. As Wendall says, though, his recent run of injuries has restricted his effectiveness. Good luck, Karl! And thanks for the memories.

Always wondered why he didn't sign for Wigan a few seasons ago when the chance came - presumably because he was offered peanuts. Would have been interesting.
