Dane Chisholm announces retirement

Dane Chisholm has announced his retirement from professional rugby league on social media.

The skilled 33-year-old, who was born in Australia, played for Hull KR in the Betfred Super League in 2015, before moving on to play for numerous Championship and League One sides – where he made a solid mark in these competitions.

During these years he went on to play for the likes of Bradford Bulls, Sheffield Eagles, London Broncos, Keighley Cougars and most recently Featherstone Rovers.

He has made a total of 143 appearances in his professional career, having debuted for NRL side Melbourne Storm in 2011. This also includes four caps for France, who he qualified to represent on the international stage through family heritage.

The Championship veteran on X (Twitter) said in his own words:

“(I've) decided to hang the boots up professionally. What a ride that was. I’ve made mates for life, travelled the world but most of all got to meet my beautiful wife and have my amazing kids. Thanks for everyone who made the journey such a good one.

“Onto the next phase.”

Featherstone Rovers have also paid tribute to their former half-back online, in which Chisholm played a pivotal role in the Rovers’ halves between 2019-2022.
