Pritchard Calls Time On Rugby League Career

Frank Pritchard was reportedly weighing up his options coming into the 2018 season, as to whether he would play in the coming season.

Yesterday when the news broke that the Parramatta forward failed to show up for training, the speculation deepened, however it has now been confirmed that he has decided to hang up his boots.

Pritchard started his career back in 2003 with the Panthers, playing 144 games for the club over a 7 year stint. The Bulldogs would be his next destination, he would spend 4 years at Belmore, featuring 104 times for Canterbury.

Pritchard moved to Hull F.C in the English Super League for one season in 2016, prompting many to believe his NRL career was over, but after impressing for the Black and Whites in his 24 appearances, the Eels offered Frank an NRL lifeline.

Pritchard would only make the field 8 times for the Eels in 2017, struggling with injury, match fitness and trying to keep some of Parramatta's younger forwards out of the squad, these things will no doubt have been a contributing factor in his decision.

As well as an illustrious domestic career, Pritchard enjoyed plenty of success at international level too, playing 27 times for the kiwis and 5 times for Samoa.

Congratulations Frank on an amazing career and best of luck with your future endeavours.
