Great Player. Great bloke. Not sure how prepared for retirement he is but hopefully a few bucks from the insurance will give him time to pull it together.

Decent pundit with a good speaking voice. Might keep him in the game even on a part time basis.

I just hope he adepts to civilian life as its come around now quicker than he wanted/planned

I'd echo all of this, I really liked him as a player and hope everything works out well for him.

We all dream of a team of Sean O'Briens......

Sorry to hear this as I'm sure no player wants to have to retire due to injury. Definitely Narbonne's loss. Thanks Micky Mac.

You know I'm going to lose,
And gambling's for fools,
But that's the way I like it baby, I don't want to live FOREVER!

Good luck and best wishes Mike. We as fans might think the timing is right, but it's always devastating for a player to have to retire due to injury.

Mike has been on the corporate speaking circuit lately and I came across this on LinkedIn via Vodafone.
His presentation includes a very informative image,
See below for the definitive training exercise that cut short Mike's career
