Rapira informed the club of his decision on Wednesday morning and says he's still working on confirming a contract with a new club.

The 27-year-old is in his 10th NRL season and has amassed the most appearances by a front rower in the history of the club, with 169.

Rapira's yet to take the field this season as he continues to deal with a hamstring injury and says his struggles with injuries over the last few seasons were part of his decision to leave the NRL.
