Melbourne Storm stand-off Brett Finch has announced his decision to retire at the end of the season.

The 32-year-old, a Challenge Cup winner with Wigan back in 2011, is in his second spell with the Storm and will take on a role in the media with the Nine Network from 2014.

Finch made his debut for Canberra as a 17-year-old and was part of the Storm's 2009 grand final-winning side, which was later stripped of the title for salary cap breaches.

"The time has come for me to enter a new phase of my life," Finch said. "I've had a great run and I just know the time is right.

"Rugby league has been very good to me and I feel very lucky to have enjoyed such a long and enjoyable career."
