St Helens have confirmed second-row Sia Soliola will leave the club at the end of the season to join Canberra Raiders in the NRL.

Soliola has been a mainstay of the Saints pack since his arrival from the Sydney Roosters in 2009, making 110 appearances and scoring 29 tries.

"He is a very popular figure at the Saints both on and off the pitch and I have no doubt Canberra will benefit greatly from his experience and character."

"Sia will be a real loss to the team," Saints CEO Mike Rush said.

"He is a very popular figure at the Saints both on and off the pitch and I have no doubt Canberra will benefit greatly from his experience and character.

"Sia made it clear earlier in the season he wanted to leave Langtree Park for family reasons and naturally we respect his wishes.

"We wish Sia and his family all the best for the future and we're sure he will want to go out on a high, hopefully at the Grand Final in October."

Soliola is the second Super League player recruited by Canberra this week, with Hull KR hooker Josh Hodgson also joining the club for the 2015 season.
