TYME DOW-NIKAU has left York City Knights after one season with the club.

Dow-Nikau joined York from Betfred League One side North Wales Crusaders ahead of the start of last season.

After a slow start in which his appearances were limited, Dow-Nikau became a stand-out performer for the Knights by the back end of the year at centre.

He finishes with four tries in 12 appearances for York, having started in all of the club's last eight matches, including the AB Sundecks 1895 Cup final at Wembley Stadium.

Dow-Nikau tweeted: "Had a ball and been a pleasure to have been a part of the club. Up the Kneets."
