Warrington Wolves have signed New Zealand international Peta Hiku until the end of November 2019.

The 24-year-old centre will join the club with immediate effect from NRL side Penrith Panthers.

Hiku started his career at the Manly Sea Eagles back in 2013 before making his Panthers’ debut in 2016. He has made nine appearances for New Zealand.

Head coach 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. He will add a lot to the group. I’m really looking forward to working with him.”

Hiku said: “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.”
