Mogg announces his retirement

Canberra Raiders centre Adam Mogg has announced today that he will retire from the NRL at the conclusion of the 2010 season, but is still hopeful of returning to rugby league this year.

A chronic knee injury has forced the former Queensland winger to cut his career one year short, but a recent arthroscopy on his knee may still give him the chance to play for the Raiders again this season.

An outstanding clubman, Mogg came to the Raiders from Parramatta in 2004 and has gone on to play over 100 NRL matches, including 96 for the Raiders. He departed the club at the end of 2006 to play for Les Catalans Dragons in the English Super League and returned to Canberra at the start of this season.

An emotional Mogg said the decision to retire came down to his knee not being able to sustain another tough NRL season and he had to do what is right for him and his family.
