St Helens are apparently nearing the signature of Sydney Roosters prop Soisiua Taukeiaho.
That’s according to reports Down Under which claim that the 29-year-old is set to move to the UK after becoming more of a fringe player fo the Roosters.
Daily Telegraph journalist Phil “Buzz” Rothfield had previously tweeted this about the potential of a move halfway across the world for Taukeiaho.

But, St Helens is his likeliest destination, which would add more power to an already incredibly strong pack with the likes of Alex Walmsley and Agnatius Paasi.
English viewers may remember seeing the prop from November 2019 when Taukeiaho captained Tonga in their stunning 16-12 victory over Australia as well as converting the goals in what has proved to be one of the biggest upsets in international rugby league history.
The 29-year-old has been with the Sydney Roosters since 2015, scoring 11 tries and kicking 60 goals in almost 150 appearances.
