An experienced member of the Toronto pack has announced his plans to retire at the end of the season.
Former NRL star Ashton Sims, who joined the Wolfpack from Warrington ahead of last season, has confirmed he’s ready to hang up the boots.
The 34-year-old former Fiji international announced the news with a video message.
He said: “It’s been absolute huge honour and privilege to represent every single club I’ve played at.
“Starting with the Dragons, up to the Brisbane Broncos, through Brisbane Broncos.
“And then Rugby League took me to the other side of the world, to Warrington in England, and now in Toronto, Canada.
“I’m lost for words, humbled, privileged to represent every club, the fans, the town, and hopefully I represented you with the honour and respect your jersey deserves.
“I’m really looking forward to the next part of my life and I’m going to take the same drive, the same heart, the same enthusiasm that I’ve taken into Rugby League these last 17 years and put into the next phase of my life.
“I want to thank everyone who’s been with me on this journey, from Australia, to England, and now to Canada – thank you very much from the bottom of my heart.
“The players, the staff, the backroom staff, the people that don’t get seen behind the scenes, I thank you, I love you and we’ll see each other soon.”
