Dan Tolar announces retirement

Newcastle Knights front rower Dan Tolar has today announced his retirement due to ongoing knee and Achilles tendon injuries.

The Central Charlestown junior made his debut for the Knights in Round 12 in the 2004 season and went on to play 101 games. In 2010, he was honoured to captain the Knights when Kurt Gidley was on State of Origin duties.

The 28-year old is naturally disappointed to be retiring from the NRL.
