Ablett announces retirement

Leeds Rhinos forward Carl Ablett has announced he will retire at the end of the season, at the age of 33.

The forward has spent the entirety of his 15 year career at the Rhinos and has won seven Super League titles, two Challenge Cups and a World Club Challenge.

“To be sitting here after a full season not being able to pull on the shirt again is really tough,” he said.

“But it’s probably the right time to put time on the career and look forward to what is to come next.

“As a kid I used to come, sit on the wall and cheer on. I never thought I’d get to player 300 and odd times for the club. You try to reflect and it’s just really good memories.”
