Junior Sa'u makes code switch with a twist
Leigh’s former New Zealand international Junior Sa’u is to switch codes at the age of 34 after joining Washington Old Glory.
The former Salford centre has been unveiled as the first signing by DC for the 2022 Major League Rugby season.
“It’s exciting to have a player with Junior’s resume at Old Glory,” said head coach Andrew Douglas.
“He’s a powerful, dynamic runner and a fearsome defender. His experience at his levels in League will bring confidence to other players. He’s an exciting signing not just for Old Glory but for Major League Rugby as well.”
Sa’u played in the NRL for Newcastle Knights and Melbourne Storm and has spent the last eight seasons in Super League, six of them with Salford. He also played for the Kiwis in the 2009 and 2010 Four Nations Series before switching his allegiance to Samoa.
