Profile

Savelio put pen to paper on a three-year deal with the Black & Whites in March, 2019, joining the club from Brisbane Broncos.

After spending his youth career with Warrington Wolves, Savelio was handed his first contract by St Helens in 2011 and he immediately caught the eye during the Saints Academy tour of Australia that year.

He went on to make 42 appearances for the Red V after making his debut in 2014.

His time with the Saints also included a brief spell on loan with Castleford Tigers in 2016, before making the switch to his childhood club Warrington for the 2017 campaign, scoring 9 tries in 25 appearances for the club and remaining a key part of the squad throughout the season.

Such was Savelio’s influence during his World Club Series appearance for the Wolves at the start of that season, he captured the attention of opposition coach and England-boss Wayne Bennett, who snapped up the forward for the following season at Brisbane.

The second-row was dealt a cruel blow in a friendly match for the NRL-side though, suffering a season-ending injury. Once he fully recovered, he returned to the UK to strike up a deal with the Black & Whites in 2019.
