Bradford Bulls captain and ex-Great Britain international Chev Walker has announced he will retire from rugby league at the end of the season.

Walker started his career with home-town club Leeds, winning the Super League title and World Club Challenge during his time with the Rhinos.

He had a spell in rugby union with Bath before joining Hull KR and Bradford.

The versatile 32-year-old is hoping to lead the Bulls, who lie fifth in The Qualifiers, back into Super League.

Bradford are guaranteed a place in October's Million Pound Game - the play-off to determine the final club to achieve Super League status in 2016 - with Wakefield almost certain to be their opponents.

"To be a part of the group which gets the Bulls back into Super League would be very special and would go down as one of my greatest achievements," Walker told the club website.
