Smith adds Hiku to Wolves’ ranks

Kiwi international Peta Hiku has signed for Warrington until the end of November 2019.

The 24-year-old joins the Wolves from NRL side Penrith Panthers. He started his career at the Manly Sea Eagles back in 2013 before switching to the Panthers in 2016.

Hiku has made nine appearances for New Zealand including as part of the Four Nations winning team of 2014.

Warrington boss Tony Smith said: “Having spoken to Peta he’s excited about coming over and continuing his successful career here in Super League, giving us the boost in the positions we need.

“He’s a high quality player with plenty of experience, having represented his country, so to come up with a quality signing like Peta is very exciting – he will add a lot to the group. I’m really looking forward to working with him.”

Hiku added: “I’m very grateful for this opportunity and excited to come and join a great club. Everyone has been very welcoming.

“I’ve heard nothing but good things about the club and the team. I just can’t wait to get over there and play some footy.”
