COWBOYS star Ben Hannant has retiredĀ from rugby league after failing to overcome an ongoing knee injury.

NRL reporter Ben Dobbin says the former Queensland representative has decided to hang up the boots despite having recently signed a one-year extension with the club.

The 31-year-old underwent surgery this off-season in hope of rectifying the ongoing issue but informed Cowboys officials on Tuesday night that he would not be returning in 2017.
