CON Mika has left Keighley Cougars after less than four months.

The former Samoa international was brought in in mid-July, and scored some vital tries as Cougars made it all the way to the League 1 play-off semi-finals.

But the forward has been handed an exciting opportunity in the France's Elite One Championship, and has therefore rejected the contract offer put to him by Keighley.

The former Hull KR star was thanked by Cougars for his services in 2021.

In a club statement, they said: "We would like to place on record our thanks to Con for his services and wish him, and his family, the very best for the future."
