Wests Tigers have today confirmed that Bodene Thompson will not play with the Club for the 2015 season.

Thompson and Wests Tigers had agreed to terms for the coming two seasons but the 26 year old has since informed the Club of his desire to move away from Sydney for family reasons.

Wests Tigers Head Coach Jason Taylor thanked Thompson for his time at the Club.

“On behalf of the Club I’d like to thank Bodene for his efforts and commitment during his time here,” said Taylor. “While we would have loved to have had Bodene here at Wests Tigers again next season I can understand his need to be close to his family and wish him the best for his playing future with the Warriors.”

Thompson joined Wests Tigers prior to the 2013 season, playing 36 games for the Club since then, scoring seven tries.
