    Default James Graham confirms retirement

    Shame he didnt get one last run out in front of the fans but been a pleasure to see him back in the RedVee over the last few months. All the best Jammer, one of the greats no doubt!

    Forwards win games. The backs decide by how much.

    I wonder if having no fans influenced his decision at all.

    Debut in 2003 for Saints, many times as a young forward he did 80 hard minutes for Saints. He is one of those players who only come around every blue moon. A great forward and a great player who will belong in the ranks of our clubs greats.

    Respect Jammer, you have done us proud.

    I first heard about Jammer when he was in the Academy and was made captain for England on the OZ tour, I saw some footage on him basically taking on the Aussies by himself. He dedicated his whole life to Rugby in those early years, I liked Woolf's comment when Jammer came back to the club, quote: "He's a Tough Bugger" and will soon be another Saints Legend in the locker.

    Certainly deserves to sit at the top table of ex Saints when retirement finally comes. I wish him every success in the next chapter of his life.

    I think he's done a good job since coming back. He's provided leadership that I think we were lacking. It would be great if he could go out with a title (even if it is in this weird season).

    Shame that we couldn't see him play out his last few games in person but it is what it is. Fantastic player, one of my all time favourites. Hope he has a long and healthy retirement!!

    Bit worried over Jammer lately, almost every game on his return he has had some form of head injury. Just hope the man goes out with his final Swan song with a win next week............Legend of a Player

    do we risk playing him in the final with his record of losing them?

    Joking aside , he hasn't done much since his comeback but I don't think Woolf would dare leave him out.

    He is a leader what more do you want from a club legend



    I was always taught to respect my elders,
    but it keeps getting harder to find one!


    I am a nobody, and nobody is perfect;
    therefore I am perfect

    Hope he's got one last big performance in him

    I expect O'Loughlin to pull a big performance out of the bag for them. He's been saving himself for the last 4 years

    Maybe that is why Welsby hit him, make sure he doesn't jinx us on Friday.

    I was saying the same thing.
    He's not on form is he at the moment and you would think there's a player that would probably be a better option..

    But yeah, I wouldn't dare leave him out either

    He was carrying our pack for 2 seasons before he went to Aus.

    Then he's had 8 seasons taking punishment in the NRL. It's definitely the right time for him to put the cue on the rack.

    Deserves more medals than he's got.

    I thought he was playing very well last night until he went off. I would loved to have been able to fly over and watch one last time in a GF. Good luck on your retirement Jammer.

    He deserves to go out in a GF. Hopefully with a ring.
