LEILANI Latu's time at Warrington Wolves is over.

The club have confirmed they have come to an agreement with the prop to release him from the final year of his contract, bringing an ill-fated spell at the club to an end.

Having been signed from Gold Coast Titans ahead of the 2020 season, the Tongan international made just three appearances for The Wire.

All of those appearances came after the Covid-enforced stoppage in the season – he played for the club's reserves and on dual-registration at Widnes Vikings prior to the shutdown but head coach Steve Price said his fitness was not of the standard required to play top-flight rugby league initially.

He eventually made his debut against Hull FC in September and scored a try in a 37-12 Wire victory.

Latu, who turned 28 last Friday, also featured in the win over Castleford Tigers the following week but the 20-18 Super League loss to Salford Red Devils proved to be his last game in primrose and blue

With the arrivals of England Knights front-rowers Rob Butler and Robbie Mulhern in the off-season, the former Penrith Panthers man was pushed further down the pecking order.

His departure also frees up another overseas quota spot – there are now two available should Price wish to use them.
