Hull KR prop Korbin Sims has announced that he will hang his boots up at the end of the season, bringing a 10-year professional playing career to an end.

The 30-year-old has made 173 career appearances for Newcastle Knights, Brisbane Broncos, St George Illawarra Dragons and Hull KR. He won nine caps for Fiji.

Sims posted on Instagram: “A couple of months ago I made a decision that the last game of the season will be the last of my career.

“I couldn’t have asked for a better game to hang my boots up on than in the Hull derby!

“One last bang with my boys.

“RL, it’s been a pleasure. But when you know, you know.”
