    Hi all,

    I was just about to bid on a 32 year old player who is far better in all aspects than my incumbent outside half. However his age is bothering me, as I'm not sure how soon and fast his attributes will be getting worse and I want to be sure I'm not just wasting my money.

    Any idea how old players, and in particular backs, generally start going down hill and/or retiring?

    Cheers, Andrew.

    Alright m8 Very Happy ?. I think players can start goin down at around 29 and just carries on. They dnt end up retiring though they jst keep geting worse and worse till u get rid. His club might be selling him now because his stats have started falling. but ive got a few players over 30 that still havent started falling :/. and if he is a lot better than your other players and if the prics isnt to high u could use him 2 strenghthen your squad for a little .
    Hope that helps a little m8

    What's the name of the player?
    The age that a player starts to decline varies - I've seen 29 year olds dropping but have also seen 34 year old popping so it's luck of the draw.
    A good indicator would have been to see if he went up or down in CSR on Tuesday, bit late now though.

    Thanks for the reply both, didn't end up signing that guy in the end, flew up from $15,000 to $45,000 in a matter of hours. Oh well, got a much younger - and cheaper - player anyway!

    So they won't retire until you drop them? That's useful to know, thanks both Very Happy
