When he retired from playing in 2007, Fletcher and his business partner Craig Markham began a cleaning company called Cleanfit.The company cleans a number of pubs, clubs and office blocks in Sydney.
He also helped Australia inflict a humiliating defeat on the New Zealand national team 52–0 as well as a 3–0 whitewash of Queensland in the State of Origin series.
Fletcher achieved even more success in the 2002 season.
He had played in 125 games for the Sydney Roosters, 45 for Souths, and a further 55 for Wigan.
He also played 2 games for City Origin, 14 State of Origin games for NSW and 13 Test and World Cup matches for Australia.
The comments were totally unacceptable and for that I am sorry.
"My actions have set a very poor example for kids who follow Rugby League and these types of comments cannot be tolerated in our game." Before the scandal that led to Fletcher being stripped of his captaincy, banned for 1 game and fined A,000 he had agreed to a move to England to play for Super League outfit Wigan Warriors after two years at Souths.Over the years Fletcher would gain 13 caps for the Australian national side and also play 14 games for New South Wales in the State of Origin matches.One of the highlights of Fletcher's Sydney Roosters career was his appearance at second-row forward in the 2000 NRL Grand Final, their first in 20 years.It turned out to be the turning point in the Rabbitohs' season, with Ashley Harrison taking the captaincy from him and the Rabbitohs winning most of their matches under him in a late season surge which saw them avoid a third consecutive wooden spoon.He later apologised for the event, saying: "I apologise unreservedly for comments that I made to Dean Widders in yesterday's game.He was one of the stalwarts that helped Wigan through one of the most tumultuous times in the club's history on and off the field in 2006 with the dismissal of coach Ian Millward, the low morale within the team and seeing the once feared Wigan club sitting at the bottom of the table.
