Goulding forced to retire

Darrell Goulding has been forced to retire at the age of 27 following a string of concussions.

The Hull Kingston Rovers centre suffered a concussion in the Robins’ 25-4 defeat against Castleford in April, which ultimately proved to be his last ever game.

Goulding was a new signing at Rovers this season after a lengthy spell at Wigan Warriors, where he won both the Challenge Cup and the Super League Grand Final.
