Myles calls time on decorated career

Nate Myles has today announced his retirement from the game.

The experienced prop will hang up the boots after 14 seasons and 233 games at the highest level.

Over that time, Myles claimed representative honours at both state and international level.

The 32-year-old made nine appearances for Australia and is one of only nine players to have played 30 or more games for Queensland (32 in total).

Myles joined Melbourne midway through the 2017 season.

“Nate Myles should be congratulated on an outstanding NRL career," Melbourne Storm Head Coach Craig Bellamy said.

“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.

“Whilst he has been at Storm his professionalism, attitude and experience, as part of our forward pack, and especially with our younger players, has been first class.”

Myles began his career with the Canterbury Bulldogs in 2005 and later played for the Roosters, Titans and Sea Eagles.
