Fullback Jordan Kahu's brief Cowboys tenure is seemingly over, with an NRL.com indicating the New Zealand international is expected to make the move back to Brisbane.
Originally contracted to the Broncos until the end of 2020, he was released by the club to join the Cowboys as replacement for Ban Barba.
The report states that the 28-year-old has decided to trigger a clause in his original release agreement with Brisbane which allows him to rejoin the club for which he has made 95 appearances over six years for the 2020 season.
Kahu played 19 games for North Queensland in 2019, scoring one try as the Cowboys finished a disappointing 14th on the ladder.
He will reportedly return to Broncos training later this month and be included in the their top 30 squad announced next week.
Kahu faces a delayed start to pre-season due to a shoulder injury sustained at the end of last season.
