Luke Power retires after 302 AFL games
12:21 AEST Tue Sep 18 2012

Luke Power will move straight into a fulltime coaching position with Greater Western Sydney, having announced his retirement after a decorated 302-game AFL career.

Power spent 14 season with Brisbane - and was a key member of their 2001-03 triple premiership-winning outfits - before joining GWS for their debut season in 2012.

The 32-year-old midfielder played 20 games for the Giants this year, while sharing the captaincy duties with Callan Ward and Phil Davis and acting as an assistant coach.

That assistant coaching role will now become a fulltime one in 2013.

"A year ago when I retired from the Brisbane Lions I probably wasn't equipped to go into a role in coaching or in football," said Power.

"Under the tutelage of a lot of people this year I've learned a lot about the game, a lot about myself and about teaching young players.

"I'm looking forward to getting into the next stage of my life."
