Wiki turns down Super League offers and quits the sport

New Zealand legend Ruben Wiki has turned down lucrative offers from the Super
League and opted to retire from rugby league.


Goodbye from me: Wiki has quit the game

After months of conjecture about his future, the owner of a world record 55 Tests for the Kiwis and 312 NRL appearances - a record for a New Zealander - the
35-year-old bows out as arguably the greatest player in his country's history.

Wiki, who announced his decision at New Zealand's pre-World Cup training camp where he is a mentor, revealed he had been offered deals by Wigan and Leeds but
family reasons dictated his decision to call it a day.

'I could have played on but to be honest enjoying the finals run with the Warriors and then playing for the All Golds has been the perfect way to finish,' said Wiki.

'I've had a great time playing alongside so many players and it's been a lot of fun being able to say goodbye to all the supporters over the past few weeks. I couldn't have hoped for more.'
