Authentic bikman: Memories of Sir Jacob Luke

A true PNG champion bows out with gratitude

The former Kumuls captain made 14 appearances for PNG and 171 in the NRL for Brisbane Broncos and Gold Coast Titans and is admired both for his playing skill and his leadership on and off the field

TWITTER - After weeks of thinking about it I have decided to retire from playing rugby league effective immediately.

I want to say a big thank you to the Brisbane Broncos, Gold Coast Titans, Catalan Dragons, National Rugby League and Super League Europe.

This game has given and taught me a lot and I will always be grateful for that.

The NRL gave me the opportunity to represent my country, Papua New Guinea, an honour I’m hugely grateful for and proud of.

Thank you to all the teammates, coaching staff and people who have been involved with the game during my time in it.

You have all played an important part in my development as a player and as a person.

Thank you to my family, who have been with me since day one.

A special mention to my wife. You are a big reason why I was able to play as long as I did.

I look forward to experiencing the next chapter of our life together.
