Michael Clark forced to retire
"It's been a tough call to make," he said. "But I have to consider what's best for my family and it's just become too much to try and hold down my job and put in the amount of time and effort that's required to train with the Warriors. That said I've lived every young kid's dream of playing footy and cricket at a high level and I wouldn't trade that for anything."
Clark made his debut for WA in 2001-02 but was limited to 17 appearances, the last in November, in which he took 49 wickets at 28.71.
