Parramatta co-captain Beau Scott has announced his retirement effective immediately, as he continues to recover from a season-ending ACL injury suffered against the Warriors in round 11.
Scott has played for St George, Newcastle and Parramatta since making his debut with Cronulla in 2005, and has played 244 NRL games.
The 34-year-old tasted premiership success with the Dragons in 2010, and has represented the Blues on 11 occasions, and the Kangaroos three times.
“I feel privileged to have played the great game of rugby league professionally for the past fourteen years, and I’m grateful for the opportunities and experiences that have come with it,” Scott told parraeels.com.au.
Eels coach Brad Arthur thanks Scott for his services, and said the club will miss having the forward around.
“Beau is one of the most experienced members of the Parramatta Eels squad, he has always given his best, and he’ll be sorely missed,” Arthur told the club’s website.
