Hunslet Hawks have agreed to release Lee Waterman from his 2016 contract by mutual consent.
Waterman has made three appearances for the club, scoring a solitary try. He joined the Hawks from Doncaster.
“Lee approached us over the weekend asking if we would consider releasing him with immediate effect,” Director of Rugby Darren Williams said.
“After speaking to him it was obvious that the travel, time away from home plus increasing family commitments were a problem as well as a current wrist injury.
“Lee has an opportunity to return to his community club Skirlaugh Bulls and do some coaching as well as playing for them so we couldn’t stand in his way and we wish him all the best for the future.”
