Featherstone half-back Nu Brown has left the club to return home to Australia for personal reasons.

The 26-year-old joined the Rovers ahead of last season after a difficult period of not playing having left NRL side Canterbury Bulldogs in 2019.

Nu Brown made 25 appearances for Featherstone in 2021, scoring 17 tries. He helped Featherstone win the 1895 Cup at Wembley.

Featherstone chairman Mark Campbell said: “Nu has been a superb ambassador for the club in our centenary year, who has given total commitment to the club during his time here.

“We would have liked Nu to have stayed in the UK because he is an exciting player and a firm fan favourite, but we absolutely respect his decision and he leaves the club with our sincere best wishes.”

Brown made 37 appearances in the NRL before his move over to the UK. He has won five caps for Samoa and played in the 2017 World Cup.
