Playing squad 2012/2013
London Irish signed the Super League and Catalan Dragons' star Setaimata Sa on a three year deal.
Standing 6'3' and weighing in at 102kgs, Sa is a powerful, imposing and versatile player who is able to play both as a line-breaking centre or back-rower. His impressive combination of speed, agility, skill and physicality enable him to play a number of positions. He is equally comfortable breaking the line as a power runner or using his outstanding play-making skills to release his team mates in the wider channels.
The move to London Irish means that Sa will be returning to his sporting roots. Originally from Canterbury Crusader territory, as a schoolboy rugby union star in New Zealand he was scouted by NRL club, Sydney Roosters in 2006. He subsequently moved to the Super League and Catalan Dragons in 2010. Sa, as he prefers to be called, has a good try-scoring record in senior rugby league, scoring 13 tries in 66 games for the Sydney Roosters and 10 tries in 39 games for the Catalan Dragons.
A dual rugby league international, he has been capped three times by New Zealand, helping them to win the World Cup title in 2008 and five times by Samoa.
