Former teammates Kreuzer, Gibbs announce AFL retirement

Carlton ruckman Matthew Kreuzer has retired from football, effective immediately, while his former teammate, Adelaide’s Bryce Gibbs, will play a farewell game against his old club after telling teammates on Thursday morning he had decided to retire.

Kreuzer, 31, was out of contract at the end of 2020 while Gibbs, who had one year to serve on a four-year deal with the Crows, has settled with the club to finish up this season.

The 2007 No.1 draft pick fractured his foot in round one, his only game this season which brought his career total to 189 matches, while Gibbs has battled to win a spot in the Crows’ team under new coach Matthew Nicks.

Kreuzer played 56 consecutive games from his debut but ruptured his ACL mid-way through 2010.
