Newcastle Eagles have agreed to release Mike Morsell, Nick Schlitzer and Sade Aded Hussein.

All three players returned to their respective home countries today after voicing concerns relating to the latest developments surrounding the coronavirus pandemic and announcements made by the US government last night.

The club understands and respects their decision to leave the UK and wishes them all of the best in the future.

The rest of the team travelled to Glasgow today in anticipation of the Trophy final and ready to face a highly motivated Team Solent side.
