THE career of one of rugby league’s great cult heroes could be over.

Beau Ryan walked out of Remondis Stadium on Saturday night knowing he had possibly played his last game.

The Sharks winger suffered a recurrence of a neck injury that required off-season surgery against his old club Wests Tigers.
X-rays over the next few days will determine his future but the Sharks are fearing the worst.

The 29-year-old winger has struggled and looked timid in his handful of appearances for the club this season.

Obviously the injury has been playing on his mind.

No one wants to see the popular Footy Show star finish his career in NSW Cup.

No one wants him to hang around and keep a younger more promising player out of the team.

I have a feeling Ryan was close to announcing his retirement earlier this year.

He only kept going because of the possibility of more ASADA drama and the fact he could help out, at least in a marketing capacity.

With a huge television career in front of him, Beau knows the risk of serious injury is not worth it.

He will be remembered as a fine winger.

Not a champion, but an honest, flashy player who could always hold his own against more fancied opponents.
