Achurch confirms he’s leaving Leeds at end of the season

Leeds Rhinos forward Mitch Achurch has confirmed that he will be leaving the Super League champions at the end of the coming season.

The big Aussie is off contract with the Rhinos but, speaking to the Yorkshire Evening Post, he admitted that he has already been told he will not be getting a new deal with the club.

Achurch joined Leeds before the start of the 2013 campaign from Penrith, but he revealed that as things stand, he’s a free agent at the end of the year.

“I am off contract, but I got told last year I won’t be at Leeds after this season,” Achurch confirmed.

“I knew this would be my last year at Leeds.

“There’s no contract talks with Leeds at the moment, so I’m a free agent.”

Achurch also admitted he’s not got any idea about his future just yet – saying he’s got nothing planned.

“I don’t have any plans at the moment, so when I get a game I just try and play well.”
