English Super League club Hull KR have released scrum-half Kris Keating just one year into his three-year deal with the club.
Keating signed with Hull from the Canterbury Bulldogs last season, however he has struggled to settle in England due to family reasons, with the Rovers deciding it was best for both parties to let the player return home to Australia.
“Kris was unsettled and wanted to return home at the end of the season,” Hull KR chief exective Mike Smith said.
“He didn’t figure in head coach Chris Chester’s long-term plans and an agreement has therefore been reached to allow him to go back to Australia.
“I’d like to thank Kris for all his efforts with the club this year and we wish him all the best for the future.
“We have been planning for next season with this possibility in mind and the process of bringing in a replacement for Kris for 2015 and beyond has already been started. We hope to have some news on this for our supporters in the near future.”
The former Canterbury Bulldogs and Parramatta Eels man made 24 appearances for Hull, scoring five tries.
