Homesick Wakefield forward Anthony Tupou has had contract cancelled by mutual consent.

The 33-year-old joined on a two-year deal from Australian NRL side Cronulla Sharks in November 2015, making 18 appearances and scoring four tries.

But chairman Michael Carter said Tupou and his family were "suffering a lot with homesickness".

Carter told the club website: "Unfortunately things did not work out as well as we all had hoped."
