The Vodafone Warriors confirmed today that Mason Lino has been granted a release to continue playing NRL in Australia.
The announcement was made early this afternoon.
Vodafone Warriors Head Coach Stephen Kearney said Lino had demonstrated the values the club stood for.
“Mason has always provided a wonderful example to everyone at the club,” he said.
“It’s not an easy decision to let Mason go because he is the epitome of a true club man and we all love having him around,” said Vodafone Warriors general manager football Brian Smith.
“He has been totally dedicated to the Vodafone Warriors but we didn’t want to stand in the way of him having a look at options with other clubs. While we’re sorry to see Mason go we’re also excited for him and wish him all the best.”
Lino joined the Vodafone Warriors National Youth Competition in 2012 and has grown through the ranks.
He scored three tries in eight games at NRL level this year as an injury replacement for Shaun Johnson and Blake Green.
“It’s tough leaving the club because it has been my home and I’m so thankful for all the opportunities I’ve had here but I’m also excited about what’s ahead for me,” he said
