The Canberra Raiders can confirm they have granted a release to Jordan Turner effective immediately, so he can take up a long-term contract with the Huddersfield Giants in the English Super League.

Turner arrived for pre-season training for the Raiders at the beginning of the 2017 season and has been playing for Mounties in the Intrust Super Premiership.

Turner thanked the Raiders for the opportunity to come to Australia and said the decision to return home was one he made for his future.

“I want to thank the Raiders for the opportunity to come over to Australia and be a part of the Raiders squad. They understand the deal for me and my partner to return home to England to play for Huddersfield was too good for me to turn down,” Turner said.

“I’ve enjoyed my time with the Raiders and will take the experience with me as I return to the Super League. I want to thank everyone at the raiders and most of all the players for making me feel welcome while I’ve been in Canberra.”

The Raiders would like to wish Jordan all the best for the future.
