Wests Tigers have releases Moses Suli from his lucrative $1.3 million, three-year contract to join a Western Sydney rival, citing his “challenges on and off the field”.
Canterbury Bulldogs are reported to have signed Suli to a three year deal.
Tigers’ CEO Justin Pascoe said releasing the Tongan international was a difficult decision, but essential for the club to move forward.
“We are working really hard both on and off the field to build something special here at Wests Tigers. That includes building a culture and set of standards that cannot be compromised.
“I am sure If he’s willing to take responsibility, be a team player and commit to the demands of being a professional athlete he has the potential to have a successful career in rugby league.”
