Killer has announced that 2016 will be his final year before retirement.
2016 Premiership Ring is the very least Killer deserves
Manly Sea Eagles Verified account @SeaEagles Jamie Lyon has announced that he plans to retire at the end of the season. Video available soon on http://seaeagles.com.au Probably a fair call. I hope that this season is a fitting farewell for him, he has been one of Manly's best ever players.
He is the greatest centre of the NRL era. As much as he is struggling these days it will be sad to see him no longer running on the field in 2017.
Surely this will inspire the team and send this CHAMPION out as a CHAMPION!!
I have been waiting for this day, and sadly it has come. What a fantastic Manly player, the centre of his generation. Now let's get him to go out with success.
A true champion and all I can say is Irreplaceable !
Thanks Jamie. You'll always be a legend, not just a Manly legend but a Rugby League legend!
It is time. But what a legacy!
One of the best centres ever Hope that manly can keep him on in some capacity to work with the players
Out and out champion - my favourite player. I think this is a wise decision from him and I would love one last hurrah for this legend.
Shows the class of the man. Even though he might of been given a nudge, he has made an early decision to call it a day ending any speculation and distraction throughout the season regarding his future. The timing of his retirement sits perfect for the club to sign or blood a 5/8
Saddest loss since the great Beaver and a huge part of our success in recent times. Loved watching his footy career.
Take a bow Jamie. Great player. Great bloke. Miss him already.
Probably wanted one more but I feel had a chat with TB and released no room under the cap for next year with manly looking towards the future. One of the best players to ever wear the maroon and white!
What a champ, and good announcement timing. We need all the inspiration we can get against the Donkeys and Cowgirls.
My favourite player - will miss his calmness, what a Champion
This will galvanise the boys.
You have all said it before me. A genuine champion and without doubt would be in the "greatest ever Manly side". I will also miss him.
