The Parramatta Eels have signed Fijian high-flyer Maika Sivo on a two-year deal from the 2019 season.
Sivo will join Fiji Bati players Jarryd Hayne and Kane Evans in the squad.
According to Zero tackle, the winger has impressed in the Penrith Panthers’ lower grades over the past few seasons, but now gets his chance for the Eels with the goal of playing first-grade football.
Sivo came through the local rugby union ranks in Fiji as a junior and represented the country in Under 20s.
He came to Australia in 2015 with Group 9 club Gundagai Tigers.
