Halifax forward Iain Morrison has confirmed his retirement from the game.

Morrison, a Londoner who played Super League for the Broncos, Hull KR and Huddersfield before starring in the Championship for Widnes, Featherstone and Fax, has endured a nightmare three years with injury.

The 30 year old recently made a comeback from major knee surgery in Fax’s under 20s side, but Courier Sport understands that continued issues with his shoulders and a torn bicep prompted his decision to quit.

“Iain’s a tough character and it’s been a tough decision for him,” said Harrison, who gave Morrison the chance to address his teammates in the dressing room before Sunday’s Championship fixture at Hunslet.

“He came to the club for the right reasons but unfortunately we didn’t see enough of him on the field.

“He feels his body is broken, basically.

“He’s been a great professional and a big influence behind the scenes and we all wish him all the best for his future.”
