- Brisbane Broncos - Tallis calls it a day:
Inspirational Broncos skipper Gorden Tallis has confirmed he will retire at the end of the 2004 season.
Tallis calls it quits. 31/08/2004. ABC News Online:
Writing in his regular column in Brisbane's Courier-Mail, Tallis said the decision to quit had been partly forced on him by injury.
- FOX SPORTS | League | Tallis tells why he quit (August 31, 2004):
This is the controversial tackle that helped convince Gorden Tallis to end his rampaging 12-year rugby league career.St George is his former team, in case you don't know.
Hardly surprising after he re-injured his neck in that tackle earlier in the season. Without that I imagine he'd have played on for a few years yet, but at the same time it's not like Tallis has anything to prove.
Sad to see him go... question for the Broncos is who will step up as Captain?
