Richmond ruckman Shaun Hampson has announced his retirement from AFL football, effective immediately.

The 30-year-old has been managing a chronic back condition for the past two seasons, and announced his retirement to the playing group earlier today.

Hampson crossed over to the Tigers from Carlton at the end of 2013, playing 35 games in the yellow and black, and 63 games for the Blues.

Originally from Mt Gravatt, Queensland, Hampson was selected at pick No. 17 overall in the 2006 National Draft.

Richmond’s General Manager – Football, Neil Balme, thanked Hampson for his commitment to the Tigers.

“Shaun worked bravely and tirelessly to give himself the best chance to overcome this painful injury,” Balme said.

“There is ultimately a point where Shaun must think of his long-term health, rather than just the immediate challenge of playing football. It was clear to Shaun and our medical staff that he had reached that point.

“Shaun certainly loves his family and it was a very difficult decision for him to make.

“He is a very popular member of our squad and we thank him for his dedication to our football club.

“We wish Shaun, Megan and their children River and Rosie all the best for the future.”
