One of the longest careers in rugby league will end in 2018
One of the longest and most versatile careers in rugby league will end in 2018 with veteran Cronulla star Luke Lewis to retire at the completion of the season.
Lewis was a part of the Sharks’ 2016 NRL premiership team and also won a title in 2003 with his former club, Penrith. He also represented NSW at State of Origin level and played 16 Tests for Australia.
Currently equal 18th on the alltime NRL games list with 315 matches, Lewis is expected to finish just outside the top ten by season’s end.
But his longevity is just a part of the story. Across his NRL career he has started in all positions barring the front row and fullback and is thought to have covered those missing spots at some point during matches.
Beau Ryan opened up about his friendship with Luke Lewis this morning on Macquarie Sports Radio Breakfast – Listen Below
The Man himself then called in to Beau and James for a chat about his career and his retirement.
