Bradford Bulls centre Keith Lulia is to return to Australia when his contract with the club expires at the end of the season.
The 26-year-old left NRL side Newcastle Knights to join the Bulls on a two-year deal ahead of the 2012 season.
He has scored 14 tries in 48 games for the Super League club.
"My wife has been expecting a baby and it will be good to raise our son around family back home in Wollongong," he told the club website.
"I'm happy at Bradford, I like the footy here and it will be sad to leave because I've had a good two years and made some good friends during that time."
Lulia is set to represent the Cook Islands in autumn's World Cup.
