Lewis Tierney Retires

Amazed that Catalans supporters on this forum haven't commented.  

Tierney was one of the scorers when Cats beat Leigh in the MPG at the LSV, to stay in Super League.  The following year, he scored in the semi and final of the Challenge Cup.  Those MPG and the Final wins would probably go down as the most pivotal in their history.

Despite the criticism he got throughout 2017 and 2018 he gave his all.

Agreed. His try in the MPG was a defining moment for the club and showed his skill.

I wish Lewis all of the best in his retirement from professional Rugby League and good luck in all his future endeavors.

And it got me to thinking that I have hit another milestone in my watching Rugby League...

The first time you see a professional player on TV who is younger than you.

The first time a professional player who is younger than you retires.

The first time you see a professional player on TV whose former Rugby League playing dad is younger than you.

Now.  The first time a professional player retires whose former Rugby League playing dad is younger than you!

Lewis really caught my eye when Catalans were a long way down the road to becoming a sick joke. Some of the big names didn't look like they were bothered, and the team was underwhelming on a weekly basis.

But in that ongoing mess, Tierney was absolutely trying 100% all the way through every game, even when it wasn't working for him. He won't be remembered as much as he deserves.

Sorry, too busy to comment until now.  

Yes, as a Dracs' fan I will remember him with gratitude, not least of all for being Johnny-on-the-spot to finish excellent short side work by Mead and Jullien and put Les Dracs ahead inside two minutes of the 2018 challenge cup final.
