ONE of the most colourful characters from Saints recent history has announced his retirement from rugby league.

Nick Fozzard enjoyed two spells at Knowsley Road, becoming a firm fans’ favourite for his full-blooded performances.

The 35-year-old called time on his playing career after suffering a shoulder injury while playing with Championship side Dewsbury.

During his pomp with Saints he won two Challenge Cups and a World Club Challenge and was one of the most-feared front-rowers in Super League.

He will now take on a behind-the-scenes role as Castleford’s commercial director.
