The 2005 premiership winner has retired from the game after suffering multiple concussions in 2014.
Wests Tigers forward Liam Fulton has decided to retire from Rugby League effective immediately, the club announced on Thursday.
Fulton has suffered from a number of concussions during the 2014 season and the 29-year-old made the decision on the back of consultation with his family and the club, the Tigers said in a statement.
He made 162 appearances for the Wests Tigers between 2003 and 2014 and was part of the club’s 2005 premiership winning side.
Fulton won both the best and fairest award and Players’ Player of the Year last season.
Tigers CEO Grant Mayer said Fulton’s decision was a brave one, and thanked him for his commitment to the club.
“Liam has made a very brave decision, one that cannot have been easy for him to make,” said Mayer.
“Having spoken at length with Liam, his family and management I know this is the right decision for him and his future health.
“On behalf of Wests Tigers I’d like to thank Liam for his commitment to the club and look forward to working with him closely into the future.”
Head Coach Mick Potter said Fulton was an important player in the squad, and that his on and off-field presence would be missed.
“Liam is a key member of our team and will be sorely missed on the field,” said Potter.
“His light-hearted approached to life is refreshing to all of us at Wests Tigers and it’s great that he will remain a part of the club.”
