Siejka released by Warriors, Townsend signed

5:54 am on 13 June 2013

The Warriors halfback Harry Siejka has been released from his contract without playing a National Rugby League game for the club.

Siejka was signed late last year on a two-year contract, but failed to crack the first grade side, spending his time in Auckland playing for the Warriors' feeder team, the Vulcans.

The club's recruitment manager Dean Bell says Siejka was missing his Sydney home and was granted an early release.

The Warriors have signed a replacement for next season with the Cronulla halfback Chad Townsend coming to the club on a two-year deal.
