    Parramatta forward Keegan Hipgrave has been forced into early retirement from the NRL after a series of concussions

    Parramatta forward Keegan Hipgrave has been forced into early retirement from the NRL after a series of concussions

    - article from www.rugbyleague.co.nz

    The 24-year-old joined the Eels from Gold Coast in 2021 and played nine games.

    Hipgrave previously had to get a medical clearance to resume playing for the Titans after enduring three concussions in the opening months of the 2019 season which saw him sidelined for nine months.

    The latest neurological tests and advice prompted Hipgrave to announce his retirement with a year remaining on his contract.
