Ben Creagh's 270-game NRL career is over, with the St George Illawarra forward announcing his retirement after struggling to overcome a chronic knee injury.

The 31-year-old will end his career as the second-most capped player in the merged club's history, while he also played 11 matches for NSW and two for Australia.

"I have loved my time playing rugby league for the Dragons but unfortunately my hand has been forced with the knee injury getting worse over the course of this season," Creagh said.
