Liam Hood: Had been with Leeds since he was a junior
Leeds Rhinos have announced that they have released Liam Hood from his contract with immediate effect.
The Scotland international hooker has not featured for the Rhinos this season, instead turning out for Hunslet Hawks in the Championship on dual registration.
Having made his frustrations at the lack of first opportunities for him at Leeds, the club have decided to let him go in order to allow him to find a new club ahead of next season.
"Liam has become frustrated with his lack of game time in the first team and asked to be released so he could speak to other clubs," explained Leeds chief executive Gary Hetherington told the club's official website.
"He leaves with our best wishes and everyone at Headingley Carnegie wishes him good luck for the future."
Hood joined Leeds from Stanningley as a junior but will now search for pastures new whilst the Rhinos ready themselves for their play-off clash with Warrington next Saturday.
