Micheal Luck announces retirement


Warriors hardman Micheal Luck has announced his retirement from rugby league at the end of the NRL season.

Luck's off contract at the end of the year and the Warriors had offered him a one-year extension, but the 12-year veteran will end his career to return home to Queensland.

He says it's been a tough decision to make.

"For the last six and a half seasons I've given my heart and soul to this club and in return have received some of the greatest experiences and memories of my life. I'm absolutely committed to finishing my career on a high by winning the 2012 NRL Grand Final."

30-year-old Luck hasn't played this season having gone under the knife twice since last year's Grand Final in October.

He's played 144 game for the Warriors in his six and a half years at the club.
