Keighley Cougars can confirm the termination of Nathan Roebuck’s playing contract by mutual consent.

Nathan, 23 has decided to retire from professional rugby with a focus on life outside of professional sport and Keighley Cougars would like to thank Nathan for his efforts at the club and wish him all the best with his next chapter.

Nathan said “It’s been difficult over the last couple of years playing with niggles and injuries. Now I have decided it is time for a break away from the game to physically and mentally allow myself to recover and get back to enjoying the sport.

I want to say thanks to the directors, all the staff and players I have been involved with, I’ve met some great personalities and friends. To the volunteers I am very much grateful to all your hard work and kindness behind the scenes.

Finally, I want to thank all the fans for showing their continued support, especially during our undefeated season last year, an unforgettable highlight of my career.”

We wish Nathan all the best in his future endeavours.
