Chan to return to Australia

Hull KR's on-loan forward Jason Chan has confirmed he is returning to Australia at the end of the Super League season.

The 30-year-old is on loan at the KC Lightstream Stadium from Huddersfield Giants, while he also had a spell with the now defunct Crusaders.

The Australian-born Papua New Guinea international has impressed at Hull KR and although a permanent deal had been suggested there is no chance of him being tempted to stay on.

Chan has options in Australia and is calling time on his six-year stint in in Super League due to family reasons.

"I still plan to go back home," Chan told the Hull Daily Mail. "I was honest with Huddersfield earlier this season and all teams since.

"I'm returning to Australia for family reasons after enjoying some great times here.

"My wife and I are looking forward to going back to Australia where I've got a few different options and talks are still ongoing.

"I've enjoyed the time I've been at Rovers with a good squad and good coaching staff."
