Kimmorley calls full time

Veteran halfback Brett Kimmorley has today confirmed that after 16 years of first grade he will retire from playing at the end of the 2010 NRL season.

He has accepted an assistant coaching role with the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs in 2011, which he will combine with his ongoing media role at Fox Sports.

Kimmorley, who turns 34 next month, has played for Australia and for NSW, has won a premiership and claimed the Clive Churchill Medal, and he recently became the first halfback in the history of the NRL to play 300 first grade games.

He says he's looking forward to sharing his experience with young halves coming through the Bulldogs.
