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

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.

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.

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.

"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 wouldnt have been possible. I will truly miss playing this great game!" tweeted Menzies.

Thinking the same! That would have been impressive!

Not saying that his career isn't already!
