NRL clubs swoop for Sia Soliola

St Helens coach Nathan Brown claims Sia Soliola has received a great deal of NRL interest since announcing his intention to leave Langtree Park at the end of the season.

The 27-year-old Samoa captain cited ‘family reasons’ for his return home, and Brown says the phone from ‘down under’ has been ringing off the hook.

He said: “Sia has made the decision that he is going to home at the end of the season which is unfortunate for us, but all the clubs in Australia will be watching him.

“He is some player is Sia and he will be sensational for someone in Australia.

‘It’s a big loss for us as a club but we are really happy for him – he loves it at the club, but it is probably more of a family move. They tell me there is a lack of quality on the market in Australia – well Sia has plenty of quality and I’m sure he’ll do well.”
