RUGBY league journeymen Ian Henderson has announced his retirement effective immediately.

Henderson suffered a horrific broken leg playing for the Roosters against the Cowboys in March and has been unable to overcome the injury.

The 33-year-old debuted for the Roosters in 2003 playing seven games in his first stint at the club.

Henderson then moved to the Eels for an ill-fated one game career for the club that lasted one minute in 2005 before moving to the Bradford Bulls who he represented 76 times over three seasons.

Henderson then moved to the New Zealand Warriors where he played some of his best rugby league scoring eight tries in 65 games from 2008 to 2010.

The tough hooker then returned to the Super League and played 129 games for Catalans from 2011 to 2015 scoring 14 tries before coming full circle with the Roosters for a three game stint in 2016 which was cruelly cut short by injury.

RLW wishes Henderson well in retirement and congratulates him on a great career.
