“I’ve had an amazing 15-year journey with the Hawthorn Football Club,” he told Hawthorn's website.

“I am content with everything I have achieved in my career to date and I know it’s the right time for myself, my family and the club.

“To play this great game for such a long time and to have experienced success like we have is something I’ll never take for granted.

“I want to thank everyone at the Hawthorn Football Club for supporting me through all the highs and lows. The bonds and friendships I’ve made will last a lifetime.
