Titan Mat Rogers announces impending retirement
Jetstar Gold Coast Titan Mat Rogers will close the curtain on his glittering 16-year career at the end of the 2010 season, with the 34-year-old today announcing his retirement from the NRL.
The dual-international will retire from football at the conclusion of this year after making the decision to focus on the next chapter in his life in a role with the Jetstar Gold Coast Titans in Sponsorship Sales from 2011.
The father of four will also continue his other business interests including his work for charity 4ASD Kids - an organisation he and wife Chloe Maxwell set up for families of children with Autism.
Rogers, who made his first grade debut for the Cronulla Sharks in 1995, said he was more than comfortable with his decision to close the curtain on his professional footballing career after 194 NRL games and 85 club and representative fixtures in rugby union.
