The Warriors centre Jerome Ropati has announced his retirement after an injury-plagued end to his 12-year National Rugby League career.
The 29-year-old has had his last four seasons severely restricted by injuries, the last a broken jaw in what has proved to be his 145th and final game against the Tigers in March.
In the past three and a half seasons he has been able to play just 18 NRL games.
The chief executive, Wayne Scurrah, says Ropati will take up a role as a club ambassador for the rest of the season with plans to consider a full-time position beyond this year.
Ropati says it's the right time for me to look ahead, to consider his family and hispost-playing career.
He says his body's telling him it's time to move on after countless injuries and 15 operations.
