Rogers released to ***ans
The Australian and New South Wales Rugby Unions have granted Wallaby utility back Mat Rogers an immediate release from his contract on compassionate grounds.
The dual international signed to play rugby league with new club the Gold Coast ***ans in 2008 and is now free to join the club a year earlier than expected.
The ***ans have urged Rogers to consider his personal issues before thinking about the next phase of his sporting career.
The Gold Coast said it will not begin contract negotiations with Rogers until after the Christmas period.
Not a huge loss for the Wallabies but a massive blow for the Tahs to lose their star player this close to the start of the new season.
Thank for the memories Mat.... one of the most exciting Super12/14 players ever... you will be missed.
I guess this opens the door for Kurtley Beale to make his Super Rugby debut a little earlier than expected.
