Hirst announces retirement

Keegan Hirst has announced his retirement from the sport at the age of 32.

Hirst was due to re-sign for old club Batley Bulldogs ahead of the 2021 season.

He started his career at Hunslet in 2008, before signing for Dewsbury Rams a year later.

Hirst then had two spells at Batley sandwiched between a year at Featherstone Rovers.

In 2015, he came out as gay, making him the first professional British rugby league player to do so.

A year later, he left Batley and played in the Super League for Wakefield Trinity. That spell came to an end this year when he signed for Halifax.
