Nathan Hindmarsh has admitted there have been periods this year where he has second-guessed himself over his retirement but the Parramatta Eels captain has ruled out making a comeback next season.
Hindmarsh yesterday responded to a report in The Australian that he was contemplating shelving his retirement plans following the appointment of NSW coach Ricky Stuart from next season and the club’s impressive late-season form.
“Every now and then (I’ve had second thoughts) but a lot of blokes who are retiring have second thoughts here and there,” Hindmarsh said.
“I’ve said that the times I have second thoughts are outweighed by the times I know I’ve made the right decision.”
“There comes a time in everybody’s career when things change and the feeling’s not there and that’s where I’m at.”
