Last NRL match for Menzies or Wiki?

5:44 pm on 26 September 2008

The preliminary National Rugby League semi-final between the Warriors and Manly in Sydney will mark the end of the NRL careers of one of two veterans.

The Warriors Ruben Wiki and Manly's Steve Menzies careers have been intertwined, their NRL careers starting just two weeks apart in 1993 and both having played over 300 first grade games.

Both went on to win premierships and play for their country. Wiki's 55 tests for New Zealand is the most internationals played by any player.

But one night will see it all end, although the playing career of Menzies will continue as he's set to join English super league club Bradford.

Wiki is yet to announce what his future holds.
