Sio joins Halifax on loan

Halifax have signed Samoan international Michael Sio on a month's loan from Wakefield Trinity.

Halifax have an option to keep the 24-year-old former New Zealand Warriors forward to the end of the season and hope his arrival will boost their chances of a top-four finish in the Kingstone Press Championship and a place in the Super 8s Qualifiers.

"We've been looking for players with experience for some time now and Michael fits the bill perfectly," said Halifax coach Richard Marshall.

"He's an accomplished (Betfred) Super League player who will offer us great utility value as well as a wise head on the field. We've got a young team out there at the moment due to injuries and I feel we needed some experience at key times in games, and Michael will offer us that."
