Cowboys playmaker Michael Morgan is set to announce his retirement from the NRL today, according to multiple reports.

The 29-year-old visited a specialist on Thursday regarding his troublesome shoulder, but according to the Townsville Bulletin and The Courier-Mail, things did not go well.

Morgan was kept out of contact work at training yesterday before flying to Brisbane, where he was given the bad news, and an official announcement about his retirement is expected today.

The co-captain of the club will be remembered as one of North Queensland’s premiership heroes, and it was his incredible flick pass that put Kyle Feldt over after the siren for the game-tying try.

He then cemented himself as the club’s long-term answer in the halves in 2017 as he led the club all the way to the grand final despite the absence of Johnathan Thurston.

The premiership-winning half was contracted until the end of 2023 on a deal worth about $1 million-a-season.

It’s a sad end to Morgan’s time with the Cowboys, his last game coming in a round two loss to the Dragons this year.
