Jobe Watson to retire at season’s end

Jobe Watson has announced his retirement.

The former Essendon captain will finish at the end of the season.

“It’s time to retire and move on,” he said on Wednesday.

Watson said the 2012 supplements scandal had taken its toll.

“I guess it’s a little bit like being in a relationship and a partner cheats on you – you get back together, but you don’t love her the same way,” he said.

“I love the game but it doesn’t feel the same way to me as it did.”
