Wests Tigers have released Jesse Parahi effective immediately in order for him to link up with the Australian Rugby Union Seven team.

“I’ve received an opportunity to return to the Australian Rugby Sevens team,” Parahi said.

“It has offered me a little bit more security over the next couple of years and I thought it would be a really good time to take that.

“I’ve really enjoyed my time back in Rugby League, especially with Wests Tigers, they’ve been really good to me and it’s going to be sad to leave but I had to take this opportunity.

“I’ve made some really good friends here and that’s one of the saddest parts of leaving — I just really want to thank those guys for looking after me and showing me the ropes.”
