Samoa international Constantine Mika has decided to leave Toulouse following the end of the season.

Mika, 30, has spent four years with the French club, scoring 26 tries in 96 appearances, and was handed the captaincy in 2019.

He said: “Sometimes we have to make tough decisions in life and that was one of them. I am sad to be leaving but I am extremely proud to have been a part of this club and I really enjoyed my 4 years here.

“The Pink City saw the birth of our children and will always keep a special place in our hearts. I would like to thank the club, my teammates and Sylvain and his staff. Thank you also to the supporters for welcoming me to your city. With my family we will be forever grateful.”

Mika played 50 games in Super League with Hull KR, and previously played for Newcastle Knights in the NRL.

Toulouse president Bernard Sarrazain, said: “It is obviously a disappointment to see Con leave but we can only thank him for everything he has brought to the TO and he will always be welcome with us. We wish him and his family all the best.”
