PNG Kumuls Forward, Rhys Martin moves to Super League

Papua New Guinea International Rhys Martin has been released by NRL club  Canterbury Bulldogs  for him to join Leed Rhinos in the Super League in the United Kingdom.

The Kumuls forward had been in the 19-man squad named by Canterbury coach Dean Pay on Saturday but his place in the final 17 to meet the Sharks was  taken by Fiji international Brandan Wakeham.

The club said Martin had been offered an extension but agreed to a release to allow him to take up a longer deal in the UK.

"Rhyse is an excellent young man and when he came seeking a release from his contract [Saturday] to take up a longer deal in Super League we decided not to stand in his way," said CEO Andrew Hill.

"We had previously offered Rhyse a contract extension, but he felt that moving to Super League was the right decision for himself and his career and as such we have agreed to allow him to leave before the July deadline."
