Boyd Cordner is set to retire due to repeated concussions.
The Roosters, NSW and Australia Test captain is reportedly set to confirm his retirement at a press conference on Monday morning, but the forward hasn’t played since suffering a head knock in last year’s State of Origin series.
The 29-year-old hasn’t played since sustaining a head knock during the opening game of the 2020 State of Origin series.
Cordner had initially been pencilled in to play round 14 against the Gold Coast, but his absence suggested that the 29-year-old’s comeback was postponed.
A premiership winner with Sydney in 2013, 2018 and 2019, Cordner also led New South Wales ro victory in 2018 and 2019 and still had another two years left on his Roosters contract.
