Warrington hooker Michael Monaghan is to retire at the end of the current Super League season.

The 34-year-old has won three Challenge Cups and twice been a Grand Final runner-up since arriving from NRL side Manly in 2008.

"It's all gone better than I could have hoped for or expected," he said.

"It's been a privilege playing here for seven years, winning Challenge Cups and playing in Grand Finals.

"I'm retiring from playing at the end of the season, but I am looking forward to moving on in the game, hopefully into a coaching role, whether that's here or elsewhere."

Australian Monaghan has shared the captaincy with Ben Westwood this season.

Wolves boss Tony Smith said: "We will thank Michael for his efforts he's put into the club at the appropriate time because we know he's got - and we've got - some unfinished business in terms of the rest of the season to go.

"He's certainly been a great asset to the club for a number of years - and in all the years I've been here - on the field but also in his knowledge of the game.

"He is going to be a huge attribute to whichever coaching staff he ends up working for."
