Nate Myles has today announced his retirement from rugby league.

The Melbourne Storm released a statement on Friday, confirming the 233-gamer's  departure.

The 32-year old switched over to Melbourne mid-season from the Manly Sea Eagles and was used as a back-up forward.

Myles played a record 32 games for Queensland, the 7th highest of all-time, and 9 games for Australia.

Myles enjoyed stints with the Bulldogs, Roosters, Titans, and Manly, before joining the Storm under Craig Bellamy.

Bellamy applauded the career of the once Australian representative.

"Nate Myles should be congratulated on an outstanding NRL career," Storm coach Craig Bellamy told

"To have played the amount of club games he has and 32 Origin matches, in a dominant Queensland era, at a consistently high level and for so long, certainly made him one of the best forwards in the game.

"If you asked any of his teammates the best thing about playing alongside Nate, I’m confident they would mention his toughness and consistent effort each week, he has never let them down on the field."
