It is understood that Cordner has taken the advice of medical professionals and has weighed up the decision to end his time with the Tri-colours with two years remaining on his contract.

Cordner was reportedly seeking clearance to return to the NRL following his latest setback, which had placed the 29-year-old's health in great concern following a string of concussions.

The NSW second-rower made his debut with the Roosters in 2011 and represented the Blues on 16 occasions and the Kangaroos across 20 tests.
