The Canterbury Bulldogs have backed out of their $3.5 million four-year deal with prop Andrew Fifita days after Fifita said he regretted signing the contract.
The Bulldogs released a statement saying he would not be playing the club in 2015 as “terms of the NRL Playing Contract could not be agreed”.
“After signing a memorandum of understanding with Andrew we’ve not been able to agree on the final terms of his NRL playing contract and have ceased negotiations with his management,” said Bulldogs chief executive Raelene Castle.
“We wish Andrew all the best for the future.”
Fifita said he would have preferred to switch to rugby union.
