RANKIN RE­LEASED TO JOIN GI­ANTS

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - SPORT -

WESTS Tigers have con­firmed the re­lease of Jor­dan Rankin, with im­me­di­ate ef­fect.

The 25-year-old util­ity back was con­tracted un­til the end of the sea­son but has been granted an early exit to join English Su­per League club Hud­der­s­field.

Rankin played 23 NRL games for the Tigers af­ter join­ing in 2016 and re­turns to the UK af­ter a pre­vi­ous stint with Hull.

“The main at­trac­tion in Jor­dan Rankin is his abil­ity to play in nearly ev­ery po­si­tion in the back line,” Gi­ants coach Rick Stone said.
