OTTAWA — The Ottawa Aces have released loose forward Ellis Robson so he can rejoin the Warrington Wolves in Super League next season.
The Aces, which announced his signing on Aug. 18, are slated to begin play in the third-tier Betfred League 1 in 2021.
"Whilst it is a shame to lose him, we wish him the very best of luck on his journey in Super League with Warrington next year," the Aces said in a social media post Friday.
Robson, 22, spent time in Warrington's academy system before making his first-team debut against Hull FC in September, making three subsequent appearances. He has also spent time with Dewsbury, Rochdale and Widnes on loan.
"Warrington are one of the top teams in Super League so to sign a new two-year deal is a really special opportunity and one I couldn’t turn down," he said in a statement. "It shows that there is a pathway for the younger lads coming through and hopefully I can kick on now.
"I’m still excited for Ottawa and the journey they’re going to be on. I’d like to thank them for the opportunity and I wish them all the best for the 2021 season. When I’m not playing for Warrington I’ll be an Ottawa fan."
