Vodafone Warriors second rower Eliesa Katoa has been granted a release to leave the club at the end of the season.
Katoa asked to be released so he can continue his career with another NRL club.
“We’re sympathetic to Eli’s circumstances,” said Vodafone Warriors CEO Cameron George.
“With so much competition for spots in the back row he hasn’t had as many opportunities as he would have liked this year. We’ve also made key signings in that area for next year so.
“We really appreciate the contribution Eli has made to our club since joining us and wish him every success for the future.”
Katoa has made 42 NRL appearances since his debut in 2020, all but one of them – against Melbourne on July 29 – played in Australia.
