Cooper Cronk, Melbourne Storm, Queensland and Australian halfback has announced he will leave the Storm at the end of the season making 2017 his last playing season for Melbourne.
With 306 games under his belt for the Storm across 15 seasons, his future in football is uncertain as he plans to relocate to Sydney in order to start a family with fiance Tara Rushton.
"There are a few things that are more important than football, such as family, getting married and starting a family.
"I've been pretty selfish in my approach to my football career and it's about time I put someone else first.
"I love the Melbourne Storm but you need a balance outside football and unfortunately I don't have that in Melbourne."
