A true professional, was a pleasure to watch the NRL games he played in and wonderful to see him end his career in England.

 

I'm gutted he's retiring, he still looked like a spring chicken chasing back on against Huddersfield

What a star and ambassador for our game. I hope he stays within it.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

France surely? Unless he is going to round things off with a win at Old Trafford! ;)

 

Can't say much more - great servant for the Bulls, even greater servant to the game. Hope he has a good retirement as he has sure as heck earned it.

Incredible career. I hope he gets the farewell he deserves in his last few games.

Even if he doesn't fancy being a coach, his vast experience should be used in some sort of mentoring/inspiration role for young players.

I suspect his close connection with Manly Sea Eagles will kick in somewhere in the near future.

"Menzies, who won the first of his 15 caps for the Kangaroos in 1994, spent 16 seasons with Manly Sea Eagles before coming to Super League with Bradford in 2009 and is expected to return to the club to embark on a new career off the field."

 

Does this mean he is expected to return to Bradford or Manly?

Manly is my bet.


It'd be a tough choice.

Seriously, his skills have not diminished at all with time and he is still good enough to play in the World Cup.

For England or France? He would qualify for both as a resident surely.

Best of luck to him and enjoyed his spell with the Bulls. He deserved a bit of better luck when he was there but was always great to watch.

Outstanding player.  His kind don't come along too often.  All the very best to him and his family.
