Huddersfield Giants have confirmed that half-back Matt Frawley has left the club to return to Australia.
Frawley, 24, joined Huddersfield from NRL side Canterbury Bulldogs on a two-year deal ahead of the 2019 season, but the club have confirmed that he has returned home to seek further playing opportunities.
He made 20 appearances in 2019, scoring three tries.
Managing Director Richard Thewlis said: “With the signing of Aidan Sezer and him being earmarked to form a partnership with Lee Gaskell the opportunities for Matthew could have been very limited in 2020 which at his age and with his undoubted abilities clearly would not have been ideal for him or the Giants.
“Agreement has been reached for him to return home and continue his career there with our thanks for his year with us and very best wishes for the future. Throughout his time with us Matthew has been a role model player showing great dignity and professionalism in difficult times and we all sincerely hope that things work out well for him at his new club.”
