The New Zealand Breakers have agreed to release Tai Webster after the star guard refused the Covid-19 vaccine.

Webster, the breakout star from last season, inked a new two-year contract with the Breakers in July but will no longer be with the club after he decided not to get vaccinated due to "personal reasons".

Breakers owner Matt Walsh says the decision was mutual.

The Breakers look set to start the upcoming ANBL season scheduled for November 18 in Australia due to the Delta outbreak.
