Leigh have confirmed that second rower Nick Glohe has left the club to return to Australia.
The Scotland international joined the Centurions from Lakes United ahead of 2020 after impressing coach John Duffy whilst playing in the Bravehearts’ World Cup qualifying games at the end of last season.
He gained plenty of fans with his commitment to the club, having paid for his own flight to England, and went on to make six appearances, scoring one try.
However in the midst of the coronavirus crisis he will now leave Leigh in order to return home to his family.
“I understand it is a difficult time for everyone and to be isolated when you already feel that way in a different country away from your family can only multiply how we all feel,” Centurions owner Derek Beaumont told the club website. “To that extent I understand Nick’s decision.
“I have to look after the club’s position so could not authorise his return as if I do that for one player, I would have to do it for all overseas players. That is not possible in the present circumstances with no knowing if he would be able to return when our season or training is able to resume.
“I would like to thank Nick for his efforts in a Leigh shirt. He came and backed himself and John showed a lot of belief in him for doing so, seeing him take his chance well and appeared in all the games that we played.
“We hope Nick arrives home safely and is able to continue his rugby career in the future. We will look to replace Nick as soon as we are able.”
