Paul Wheatley and Matthew Whelan announce that they will retire at the end of the season.

"It's been exciting to see the team develop around me," Wheatley said.

"Our current list of young players will hold the club and our supporters in very good stead over the next 10 years and beyond."

"I know the club is heading in the right direction and it's going to be great to watch the next crop of young indigenous players blossom over their journey," Whelan said.
