DRAGONS playmaker Michael Witt has announced his retirement from rugby league at the end of the season.

Witt joined the Dragons on a one-year deal for the 2014 season, but has endured an injury plagued year with a shoulder dislocation and ACL rupture.

After 12 seasons of playing first grade, the 30-year-old says he has no regrets in calling it a day.

“It was decision that I had been weighing up in the back of my mind earlier on this season and I have no regrets after twelve great seasons playing first-grade,” said Witt.

“To play in the NRL has always been a dream of mine and I’ve been privileged enough to have played more games than I could have ever imagined.

“Over the next several coming weeks I hope to start sorting out my future and commence the next chapter in my life alongside my family who have supported me throughout my career.”

Witt’s career spanned across the NRL and Super League with stints at Parramatta (2003-04), Manly (2005-06), NZ Warriors (2007-08), Crusaders (2010-11), London Broncos (2012-13) and finally St George Illawarra (2014).
