Former Titan Falloon released by Leeds

Leeds have released Australian hooker Beau Falloon following their capture of James Segeyaro.

Falloon, 29, joined the Rhinos from Gold Coast Titans ahead of the 2016 season as the replacement for Paul Aiton, who moved to Catalans Dragons, but he missed the start of the season after damaging a foot in training and went on to make only 10 appearances.

Falloon was on a 12-month contract and Leeds say they have reached agreement with him to terminate the deal.

“Beau leaves with our best wishes,” said Leeds chief executive Gary Hetherington.

“We are sorry that things did not work out with Beau and the club as he has been a great professional since he arrived.

“The signing of James Segeyaro was not planned for this season but his availability has resulted in us having to make a decision on Beau.

“Beau could not have tried harder during his time at the club and he has been unfortunate with injuries at certain times.

“Nobody has been more frustrated by those injuries than Beau himself. He now has the opportunity to look at new options for his next club.”

Segeyaro, who has joined the 2015 champions until the end of the season in an exchange deal that sent Zak Hardaker to the Penrith Panthers, will make his Super League debut against leaders Hull on Friday.
