Wigan have confirmed they have released Frank-Paul Nuuausala.
Nuuausala, 31, played 47 games for the Warriors after joining midway through the 2016 season, and played in the Grand Final winning team that year.
Executive Director, Kris Radlinski, said: “Frank and his family have struggled to adapt to life in the UK. His family are currently back in Australia having decided to stay there following the close-season break and his situation was becoming increasingly difficult by the day.
“We agreed that it would be best for both parties to allow him to be released from the remainder of his contract with Wigan in order for him to return home.
“Frank had a positive impact on the squad in 2016 when he provided a timely boost towards the end of the year that ultimately ended in Grand Final glory. We thank Frank for his service and wish him and his family well for the future.”
Nuuausala is already being linked with a return to the NRL with Sydney Roosters.
