Hull FC have allowed half-back Jordan Rankin to return to his native Australia after a family bereavement.

Rankin has been granted leave until 5 July, missing Sunday's Super League match with Wakefield and probably the following game against Warrington.

The 22-year-old joined from Gold Coast Titans last year and has scored 68 points in 15 league appearances.

"Jordan received bad news this week and we felt it right to let him be with his close family," said coach Lee Radford.
