Centre Kallum Watkins has been denied a chance to say goodbye to Leeds Rhinos after a mix up with NRL registration rules.
Watkins was due to sign for Gold Coast Titans on July 1st after recent speculation about his future.
But because of NRL registration rules, he must arrive in Australia before Sunday’s deadline.
It means Watkins has flown straight to Australia and will not get the chance for a farewell appearance against Catalans Dragons on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Trent Merrin has been announced as the clubs new captain for the short term.
