Featherstone release Ase Boas with immediate effect

Featherstone have released Papua New Guinea international Ase Boas from his contract with immediate effect because of sudden changes in his family life. 

Boas will return to his native Papua New Guinea after making five competitive appearances for Rovers.

He scored a try on debut for Featherstone as well as kicking two goals in their 46-16 win over Halifax.

A Featherstone spokesperson said: “Everyone at Featherstone Rovers would like to warmly thank Boas for his contribution to the club and wish him and his family all the very best for the future.”

The club have confirmed that Ase’s younger brother, Watson, will remain in the UK and is available for selection in Sunday’s match against Dewsbury Rams.
