Wigan Warriors have revealed forward Frank-Paul Nuuausala has been released by the club due to family reasons.

The 31-year-old penned a three-and-a-half-year contract in June 2016 but has decided to return to Australia to be with his family.

Nuuausala says he has enjoyed his time in Super League and has thanked the Warriors for giving him a chance in the northern hemisphere.

"Not many people can say they've played for Wigan, and I'm proud to have done so," Nuuausala said in a statement.

"I've enjoyed my time at Wigan. I don't think I reached my full potential whilst being here but I leave with fond memories of winning the Grand Final and the World Club Challenge.

"Wigan as a club have really accepted me and all of the coaching staff and players have been great with me during my time here."

Nuuausala follows in the footsteps of hooker Michael McIlorum and centre Anthony Gelling who have also left the DW Stadium.

Wigan are 4/1 to win the Super League grand final and 1212/1 to win the Challenge Cup this season.
