KEIGHLEY Cougars have waved goodbye to Anesu Mudoti.

The young prop, who scored a try on debut in the Challenge Cup against Hunslet last year, was handed a new one-year deal at the end of 2022.

And with that due to expire soon, he has been released from his contract early, so he can explore an opportunity in the amateur game.

That was also the case last week, when winger Keenan Dyer-Dixon departed the club in similar circumstances.

Cougars have thanked Mudoti for his time at the club and wish him the best in his future.
