Wests Tigers forward Liam Fulton is the latest in a line of players considering their future through injury.
Fulton, 29, is in his eleventh season of rugby league having appeared for the Tigers on 162 occasions. A number of head injuries sustained in the first half of the season will see Fulton consider his future.
Stricter guidelines were set down by the National Rugby League this season regarding players with concussion during the game. It appears the West Tigers are taking a duty of care in this instance.
The West Tigers statement as follows:
Earlier this afternoon Wests Tigers received feedback from Dr Paul McCrory regarding recent scans undertaking by Liam Fulton after he suffered a number of concussions in the first half of the 2014 season.
Liam and his family are now taking time to consider the results.
Wests Tigers and Liam will be making no further comment on the issue until all parties have met and have discussed the results further.
The Club asks that the privacy of Liam and his family is respected at this time.
