South Sydney premiership-winner Lote Tuqiri has reportedly played his last game in the NRL and looks set to either retire from the game or enjoy a farewell season in Japanese rugby.
According to The Daily Telegraph, the Rabbitohs and Tuqiri have parted ways despite the 35-year-old playing a pivotal role in the club’s 2014 premiership success.
Tuqiri has played 167 NRL games since his debut in 1999, including spells with the Brisbane Broncos, Wests Tigers and the Rabbitohs.
A move to Japanese rugby union is an option for Tuqiri, who had a successful stint in the game with the NSW Waratahs, Leicester Tigers, Leinster and the Wallabies.
