Hull Kingston Rovers have confirmed that Kris Keating has been released from his contract at the club with immediate effect.
The halfback joined the Robins from Canterbury Bulldogs on a three-year deal at the start of the season, but has not settled well in East Yorkshire.
Rovers have confirmed that they are now actively seeking a replacement.
“Kris was unsettled and wanted to return home at the end of the season,” said Rovers chief executive Mike Smith.
“He didn’t figure in head coach Chris Chester’s long-term plans and an agreement has therefore been reached to allow him to go back to Australia.
“I’d like to thank Kris for all his efforts with the club this year and we wish him all the best for the future.
“We have been planning for next season with this possibility in mind and the process of bringing in a replacement for Kris for 2015 and beyond has already been started.
“We hope to have some news on this for our supporters in the near future.”
