Biography

SIA Soliola's bone crunching hits have become a real highlight at Langtree Park.

The 6ft 3" second rower joined the club in 2009 after making more than 90 appearances for the Roosters and crossing the whitewash on 20-plus occasions.

He made his Saints debut at the beginning of the 2010 season before ankle ligaments ruled him out for six weeks. His return against Warrington Wolves in the second row was a success but he ruptured his patella tendon in training and was expected to miss the entire campaign.

However, Sia came back before the end of the season and was pivotal in the side's run to the 2010 Grand Final.

He proved to be an absolute monster in 2011 in both the centre and second row positions and in 2012 he probably had his best season to date taking home the Supporters Player of the Year award.
