Featherstone release Tom Holmes

Featherstone have released half-back Tom Holmes by mutual consent.

The 26-year-old joined Rovers from Super League side Castleford Tigers in the off-season on an initial one-year deal.

Holmes rejected a number of offers from Super League and Championship clubs to sign for Featherstone but the club have now terminated his contract early by mutual consent.

A Featherstone spokesperson said: “Tom Holmes has left the club after agreeing mutual terms for an early release.

“This agreement continues Featherstone’s 2019 restructure.

“The club thanks Holmes for his contribution and understanding. Good luck with your rehabilitation and future career, Tom.”

Holmes had his season cut short after rupturing his ACL in June. He made 18 appearances for Featherstone, scoring six tries.

The half-back is the latest player to depart Featherstone after Gareth Hock left earlier this week.
