The Manly Sea Eagles have released promising front row forward Willis Meehan from his two year contract agreement.
Meehan has been granted the release immediately so that he can pursue a career in his other sporting career of professional boxing.
Gareth Holmes, Sea Eagles NRL Football Operations Manager, said Head Coach Trent Barrett and Director of Football Bob Fulton had amicable talks with Meehan’s management over the past few weeks.
“It was decided it was in the best interest of all concerned that Willis made a commitment to one sport,’’ Holmes said.
“With the time needed in an NRL full-time squad, Willis chose to go in a different direction and we wish him well in his endeavours.”
