South Sydney fullback David Peachey will announce his future with the club tomorrow.
The 33-year-old former Cronulla star comes off contract at the end of the season and may be forced into retirement with the Rabbitohs considering whether to re-sign the 13-year veteran.
If he does hang up the boots, Peachey is expected to stay on with Souths in a liaison role working with indigenous youths and young players.
A media conference with Peachey, Souths owners Russell Crowe, Peter Holmes a Court and chief executive Shane Richardson, has been called for tomorrow at noon in Sydney.
Elsewhere, Bulldogs winger Matt Utai has re-signed with the club for another two years.
The 26-year-old, who has endured a difficult season with injury and is currently out with a knee problem, has agreed to extend his contract with the Dogs until 2009. A Bulldogs junior, Utai has played 107 first grade games since making his NRL debut for the club in 2002.
He has also played five Tests for New Zealand, but suffered a compression fracture in his right leg in his one and only NRL game for the Dogs this season in early May, and isn't expected to return to action until late this month.
