Dewsbury Rams hooker Wayne Godwin is to retire after his side's home game against Workington on Sunday.
The 33-year-old started his professional career with Castleford before spells with Wigan, Hull FC, Bradford and Salford.
He has spent the last two seasons with the Rams but had a brief loan spell with the Red Devils earlier this year.
"He's one of those people you can't help but like and he's a pleasure to coach," said Rams coach Glenn Morrison.
"Every player he's ever played with is his best mate. He's a great bloke and I know he hasn't been able to get the best out of himself at the Rams but, all the time he hasn't been playing, he's been giving his all for the club.
"He's always wishing the boys the best and supporting us and I know that won't change in the future."
