Luck for the ages - a legend's last stand
Monday 27 August 2012 2:36 PM
Luck for the ages ... that's Micheal Luck, one of a kind who'll end his rugby league playing days on Sunday hailed as one of the Vodafone Warriors' all-time greats.
The veteran loose forward will run out for the club for the last time in Sunday's final match of the season against Canberra at Mount Smart Stadium (4.00pm kick-off NZ time).
Along with other departing players, Luck (30) will be acknowledged after the game. His legacy will be lasting.
He'll go down not just as one of the best players in the club's history but even more so as an absolute legend and an ultimate warrior.
He has been unerringly loyal, utterly committed and totally fearless;
He has spilled litres of blood and had countless stitches to close up wounds;
He has been battered, bruised and often busted battling for his club's cause. In the end he both knew and accepted his body could take no more even though his mind and heart remained willing.

On Sunday his final appearance is fittingly his 150th for the Vodafone Warriors, just the eighth player to reach the mark in the club's 18th season in existence. It's his 226th career game.
Few players have so deserved a special send-off as they enter retirement.
The challenge to Vodafone Warriors members, supporters and all sporting fans is to give him a memorable farewell by getting along to Mount Smart Stadium this Sunday to salute him (and to also farewell James Maloney and Lewis Brown).
Watch the Vodafone Junior Warriors first (1.45pm) and then the NRL team at 4.00pm as they take on the Raiders.
