Steve Menzies, Super League’s oldest-ever player, will return to Manly Sea Eagles when he hangs up his boots at the end of the season.

Menzies, who scored 180 tries from 349 games for the Sydney club from 1993-2008, will be back at Brookvale Oval as a club ambassador in 2014 and 2015 after announcing his retirement at the end of the season, just two months before his 40th birthday.

The second row forward will be involved across all aspects of the business, including event and corporate appearances.

“I spent my entire NRL career with the Sea Eagles and I’m excited to be involved with Manly once again,” Menzies said.

“It will be great to be back on the northern beaches, sharing my love for the club that gave me my start.”

Menzies played in five grand finals for the Sea Eagles, including their 1996 victory over the Dragons, claiming a second Premiership in 2008 to bring a fairytale end to his NRL career.
