Cult favourite Mark Tookey has surprisingly announced his rugby league retirement just days after announcing a two-year deal with reigning Queensland Cup champion Redcliffe.

Tookey, 29, moved back to Australia recently after a three-year stint in England.

The huge prop became a fan favourite during his time in Australia where he made his first grade debut for South Queensland Crushers in 1996.

He went on to enjoy stints at NRL clubs Parramatta and the New Zealand Warriors where he featured in their charge toward the 2002 NRL grand final.

He relocated to England in 2004 where he played for Super League clubs Castleford, London Broncos and Harlequins.

It was believed Tookey knocked back a lucrative Super League deal to return to Australia with his young family
