Bulls Captain Announces Retirement

Matt Diskin is leaving Super League after fourteen years at the top.

Bradford Bulls captain Matt Diskin has revealed he will retire from Rubgy League at the end of this season.

The 32 year old has had a long career in Super League- playing for ten years with Leeds Rhinos before transferring to Bulls in 2011. He also took temporary charge of the Bulls earlier this year as a player-coach until James Lowes’ appointment.

Diskin said, “Its every kids boyhood dream, I’ve had a career in something I’d have done for free at the drop of a hat.

"To have 14 years at the top level is something I’m really proud of considering I’m not the best player knocking about, I‘ve earned everything through hard work, grit and determination.”

 “I’ve been very blessed, I’ve worked very hard and I’ve played with some fantastic teams and some fantastic players who have put me in situations where I can win things. I wouldn’t swap any of it, decisions I’ve had to made the things I’ve done I don’t regret any of them”
