Fijian international Brayden Williame has left the Catalans Dragons in order to take up a contract in the NRL.
Williame made 72 appearances for the Dragons, including the Challenge Cup Final, where they won major honours for the first time.
He told the club website: “First of all, I want to thank Bernard and the coaching staff for giving me the opportunity to come to the Dragons back in 2017. It’s been an experience I’ll cherish forever.
“Thank you to the members and fans for the endless support the past three years. And lastly to the players and families, thank you for making my family and I feel welcome from the start.”
Head Coach Steven McNamara added: ”Whilst we are very disappointed that Brayden will leave our club immediately, he does so with our full support.
“We completely understand his reasons for asking for the release and the opportunity which he has in front of him for both himself and his family.
“Brayden will be a big loss to our team, his commitment and development as a player at Catalans has been a pleasure to see and he will always be remembered as a player who gave his all in every game. We wish him and his family well for the future.”
