Exclusive: Curtis Rona quits London Irish after going AWOL for a week​

Australia international Curtis Rona has left London Irish with immediate effect after previously going missing in action for a week.
Rona, 30, informed his team-mates at the club's Hazelwood training ground on Monday of his departure.
The former Wallaby has been linked with a return to playing rugby league in the NRL in Australia having previously played for North Queensland Cowboys before switching to Canterbury Bulldog, but is now set to take up a contract playing in Japan. Rona won three Test caps for Australia in 2017 under then head coach Michael Cheika.
Rona joined London Irish in 2019 and has been a key performer for the club over recent years, forming a strong centre partnership with Benhard Janse van Rensburg.
The centre featured in London Irish's first three matches of the 2022-23 season against Worcester, Bristol and Northampton, but was not part of Irish's matchday squad in the win over Bath before the club went on their bye last week.
Rona leaves the club having scored 16 tries in 70 appearances, with England international Will Joseph and Italy international Luca Morisi now the club's main options at outside centre.
“Thank you to the supporters and everyone at London Irish for making me feel so welcome at the Club from the first day that I arrived,” said Rona.
“I want to thank the players, staff and coaches for everything that they have done for me, and I wish London Irish nothing but the best for the future.”

Director of Rugby Declan Kidney added: “We are disappointed to see Curtis go. We wish him and his family well on their next adventure and thank him for his efforts in the London Irish shirt.”


I wonder where he'll end up, Japan, NRL or Super Rugby?

It's just really disappointing, he clearly wanted to leave and asked to be released to join the force - LI rejected it. So now he does this anyway but probably lost to the force. Rubbish outcome.

Doesn’t appear that joining the Force was his intention. Strange that he wants out only a little over a year on from signing a “long term contract”.

Burton has signed with San Diego who he played for previously.

I’d say Meakes won’t struggle to have another MLR club pick him up. It’s a shame most Super Rugby Squads have filled their spots at this stage.
