Melbourne Storm veteran Nate Myles has announced his retirement from Rugby League.

In a statement the Storm congratulated Myles on a decorated career.


“Nate Myles should be congratulated on an outstanding NRL career," Storm 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.”

The 32-year-old played 233 first-grade games, 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 began his career with the Bulldogs in 2005 and would later played for the Roosters, Titans, Sea Eagles and Storm.
