Leeds Rhinos forward Nathaniel Peteru has left the club by mutual consent.
The prop still had one year left on his contract but has been granted a release to allow him to pursue other opportunities.
Leeds director of rugby Kevin Sinfield said: “On behalf of everyone at the club I would like to thank Nathaniel for all he has given to the Rhinos during his two seasons at Emerald Headingley.
“He has been a popular member of our squad and leaves with our best wishes and thanks. I know he is excited about the new challenges ahead and we wish him the best of luck for the future.”
Peteru said: “Firstly I would like to thank the club, the players, the coaches and staff for making me and my family feel welcome during my time at Leeds.
“It has been a privilege to represent the club and has also been a great journey for myself.
“I am thankful to the club for allowing me to leave to pursue my ambitions elsewhere and I would also like to pay tribute to the fans who have been unreal to me since I arrived at the club.
“I leave with fond memories and wish the Rhinos all the best for the future.”
