One New Zealand Warriors back rower Josh Curran has been granted an immediate release to continue his career with another NRL club.
The 24-year-old Sydney-born Curran was off contract at the end of next season after originally joining the club midway through the 2019 campaign.
“We recently advised Josh that it was unlikely we would be able to re-sign him beyond next year,” said One New Zealand Warriors CEO Cameron George.
“We told him we were happy for him to see out his contract but if he did find an option that provided him with longer term security to please come back and talk to us.
“We’re pleased for him that he has found a new club and he leaves with our best wishes. We really appreciate the contribution Josh has made in his five seasons with us.”
Curran joined the One New Zealand Warriors in 2019 after his debut and only appearance for the Sydney Roosters that year.
Used predominantly off the bench, he played 23 matches during the 2023 season to lift his tally for the club to 60 games.
