I don't blame them. I'd have been happy for him to have stayed.

Unfortunately for Lewis, one position we seem to have some depth in is 2nd row forwards.

I wish him the best of luck, he's never in my mind given less than 100% to the Warriors and scored some great tries along the way.

I would be more than happy for Ivan to take Ropo. Regardless of Inu, I would like to see something a bit more special than Jerome, longterm.

With Luck, I hope the club give him a future in some type of trainer/mentor role. But I can't see him getting much more gametime. Taylor has probably cost him any chance of a contract extension.

Former Kiwis utility Lewis Brown has announced his retirement from rugby league.

The 32-year-old played for the New Zealand Warriors, Penrith Panthers and Manly Warringah Sea Eagles during his 10-year NRL career.

The Christchurch product announced his retirement on Instagram on Tuesday night.

He was not offered a contract for 2019.

"Today I have decided to walk away from my dream and retire," Brown said.

"I achieved more than I set out to do and have created memories and friendships that will never be forgotten or broken. I want to thank the game, all my team-mates, fans and teams but most of all I want to thank family, especially my mum and pop.

"They sacrificed so much to make sure I achieved what so many people said I would never be able to do.

"I will always love the game but you know when it is time to walk away. I look forward to all the new challenges I face in life."

Brown represented the Kiwis on 15 occasions.

Saw the thread title and nearly laughlaughed myself off my chair
Sorry about that lol. Didnt have a chance to change it yet. Thread was started in 2008 for the 2009 season.

For those wondering it was previously called 'Lewis Brown to the Warriors'...

Glad that hes going out on a high with a plan for his future. I like the little cantabrian and thought he was good, not great, in his time with us.

He gave 100% when some looked like they were only giving 90%.

Shame he didn't get to 200 games- stuck on 199.
That's still a good career tho.

Was a handy footballer when he was at his peak. Useful player in that he could cover a few positions which is useful to cover injuries.

Looked like he was a bit off the pace last year. Probably a good time to call it a day.

A pity he's stuck on 199 though.

He can say he played in a grand final.
That was his best year for me.
Just plugged any hole effectively.

Was the ideal bench utility really.

Could capably cover hooker/backrow/and centre......in a squad those types are very valueable.

Solid career
