Ben Galea: No longer retiring at the end of the season
Ben Galea is no longer retiring from rugby league and has confirmed he will not be playing for Hull KR last season.
Last month the Robins skipper announced he was hanging up his boots after he failed to win fresh terms with the club.
He waved farewell to the Rovers supporters after last Sunday's game with Wigan, and will make his final appearance for the club he has served for five years at London on Saturday.
That was meant to be his last ever game but on Friday admitted he has changed his mind, writing on his official Twitter account: "Before tomorrow's game I would like to let everyone know that I have decided not to retire.
"I will reveal more about my plans in due time. Unfortunately I won't be with Hull KR."
Galea has an admirer in Hull FC coach Peter Gentle who he worked with at Wests, but is unlikely to make the cross-city switch.
