Exclusive: Hopoate says he turned down NRL moves for Saints

Hear from the Club's new signing Will Hopoate who tells us why he turned down NRL offers to sign for the Saints in 2022.

Hopoate’s signing was confirmed earlier today and we caught up with our newest Saint ahead of the move over to England.

In this EXCLUSIVE chat to Saints TV, Hopoate reveals how he turned down moves to other NRL clubs in favour of Saints, whilst he admits Head Coach Kristian Woolf had a big influence on his decision having been coached by the boss under his Tonga leadership.

He reveals how the move came about, what former Saint and teammate Luke Thompson has told him, why he chose the Saints and what the Saints fans can expect from him.
