St Helens have signed Manly forward Curtis Sironen for the start of the 2022 season.

The Super League champions have announced the 28-year-old second row, son of former Australia international Paul Sironen, has signed a two-year deal with the option of a third season.

Sironen has scored 17 tries in 65 appearances for the Sea Eagles in Australia's NRL competition having previously played for Wests Tigers.

Sironen said: "I am very excited about the next chapter in my career and I couldn't have hoped to have signed with a better club.

"Every Australian player knows that the Saints set the benchmark in the Super League.

"It was a very easy decision for me because I always wanted to play in England at some stage and I feel now is the right time to be making the move."

Sironen's signing continues coach Kristian Woolf's preparations for 2022 following the announcement last month of the capture of Canterbury and Tonga back Will Hopoate.

Woolf said of Sironen: "He is a big, athletic, edge back-rower with a very good skill set.

"Being a stand-off in his younger years, he has a real good passing and second-phase game, so he has all the attacking attributes to make a real impact for us next season.

"He knows how to play tough and has very good defensive ability so he will improve us."
