Brisbane Broncos tough guy Tonie Caroll will retire from the NRL at the end of the 2008 season.

The 31-year-old also revealed he's played his last game for Queensland in State of Origin football, closing the door on an 18-cap era with the Maroons.

A four-time premiership winner with the Broncos, the former New Zealand international cited discussions with his body as the main reason he'll soon be just another spectator.

"My body is telling me it's time. I couldn't train properly last year and even at the start of this year it's the same so I think that's a sign it's time to hang up the boots."

What will he do with the last pair of boots he ever plays in? This remains a mystery to all. You might have a suggestion.

The former Leeds Rhino star has completed a business certificate course and will be joining a real estate agent on the Gold Coast.
