A shoulder injury has forced veteran forward Nick Fozzard to call an end to his playing career.

The 35-year-old former Great Britain international was seeing out the final year of his career with Championship side Dewsbury.

But a torn rotator cuff in his shoulder has led the player to confirm his retirement.

"I am gutted that we have lost a player of this calibre," said Dewsbury coach Warren Jowitt.

"He would not have been back for nine months and he is devastated that his career has ended."

A Challenge Cup and World Club Challenge winner with St Helens, Fozzard became one of the most feared front-rowers in the Super League with the Saints and was named in the 2007 Dream Team as a result.

He also played for Leeds, Huddersfield, Warrington and Hull KR, as well as having another spell with the Saints.

His last season in Super League came last year with Castleford.
