Sia Soliola follows Hodgson to Canberra

St Helens back-rower Sia Soliola will join Canberra Raiders in 2015, the NRL outfit has announced.

The Samoan captain, 28, has publicly expressed his intentions to return home after this season but did not specify where he would be playing.

He joins Hull KR co-captain Josh Hodgson as part of the Raiders’ 2015 roster.

“Both Iosia and Josh are fantastic signings for the Raiders for the next two years and we believe their experience will be invaluable for our squad,” said Raiders CEO Don Furner.

“Both players are having fantastic seasons in the English Super League and we look forward to them joining the Raiders for the pre-season.”
