One Of The NRL's Toughest Players Calls It Quits Due To Concussion Issues

Veteran hooker Isaac De Gois' NRL career is over with Parramatta reportedly saying he will not play for the club again due to concussion issues.

Parramatta have ruled that journeyman hooker Isaac De Gois will not play for the NRL club again after a pre-season concussion.

The 32-year-old suffered a head knock in a clash against Gold Coast in Alice Springs in February and News Corp Australia reported that time has been called on his career at the Eels.

"It all comes back to a duty of care issue," Eels chief executive Bernie Gurr told The Sunday Telegraph.

"He has a contract until the end of next year but we're not comfortable picking him to play.

"It's not a money issue and it's not a salary cap issue. He'll get paid everything he is owed."

The 225-game veteran De Gois and his manager were informed of the decision a fortnight ago and the hooker is believed to have accepted that his NRL career is over.
