Darren Lockyer

I knew this day was coming, but still - one can never prepare for something like this.

Darren Lockyer captain of the Brisbane Broncos, Queensland and Australia has announced this this will be his last year in the NRL.

The greatest Bronco ever in my opinion - not to mention a genuine bloke on and off the field. The game will be worse without him.

Let's hope we can send him off in the same manner as Shane Webke in 2006 - lifting the premiership trophy.


A true legend of the game.
