I am writing an article about career ending injuries and how a career can end in an instant - in light of Chris Judd's recent retirement.

Can anyone help me with some career ending injuries? Can be from Freo or any other teams you can think of!
Thanks in advance!

Guy McKenna. Although the injury was to Gary Ablett so that might not count.

Sir Robbie Haddrill was cruelly decimated by injuries.
Nathan: When did you get balls?
Simon: I've always had balls you've just never seen them.
Nathan: That's the gayest thing I've ever heard.

Looks like poppypenny is looking specifically for careers that ended right then and there from one injury, rather than from injuries.

Brett Ratten vs us in 2003 comes to mind.
