Moule retires from rugby league

Melbourne Storm centre AARON MOULE has retired from rugby league.

The 25-year-old Queenslander says his constant battle with injuries has forced him out of the game. MOULE has had a wretched run with injuries in his national rugby league career. He's had three shoulder reconstruction's, a knee reconstruction and the chronic groin complaint osteitis pubis but had worked his way back to full fitness this season.

MOULE says he'll remain in Melbourne and concentrate on business interests away from football. He's played more than 100 games for the Storm, has been the club's leading try scorer for the past two seasons and played in the Storm's 1999 premiership team.
