Having to release a player is never a good feeling for a club but when it is for the betterment of a player, in this case Australian half Brett Seymour who is battling depression after a traffic incident in March, their decision is made in the best interests of the player.

Seymour, who last played for Hull back on March 2 faces an uphill battle, but it is one that the club feel is the best decision for Seymour, with the club wishing him all the best for his future as he battles depression.

“Brett is at a stage where he needs to be concentrating on a number of important aspects of his life other than rugby league,” said Hull Director of Rugby, Shaun McRae.

“He leaves Hull FC with our best wishes for the future.”

Seymour himself knows that he will need help to battle his depression and he has thanked Hull and all involved for their support in his battle.

“I wish to thank all the FC fans for their ongoing support. I have never experienced such passionate, supportive people and we are forever grateful,” said Seymour.

“Our daughter Monroe Maria was born in Hull so this city will always hold a very special place in our hearts.

“I now focus 100% on getting well. Thank you for everything.”
