Sione Mata’utia will soon be in a snowy St Helens to take up a new challenge with the Super League Champions after he waved goodbye to Australia on social media today.
Mata’utia agreed a two year deal with Saints before Christmas and will join Joel Thompson, Agnatius Paasi and Dan Norman as our new recruits ahead of the 2021 season.
And after he finally received clearance to travel after his visa was approved, his latest post on his Instagram account shows Sione and his family at Sydney airport ready to head over to the UK to join the Saints family!
HE’S ON HIS WAY! 🙌🙌🙌🙌

The 24 year old backrower, who can also play at centre, will wear the number 14 shirt when he arrives at the Club in the next few days.
Once he arrives in the town, you’ll be able to hear exclusively from Sione on Saints TV in the coming days. Stay tuned!
