Saints centre Jordan Turner will join Canberra Raiders at the end of the season after he agreed a two-year contract with the NRL club.

The 27-year-old Grand Final winner has scored 200 points for the club since he signed from Hull FC in 2012.

He has made 107 appearances, taking on a utility role including stints at centre, stand-off and loose forward.

Saints CEO Mike Rush said: “We’d like to thank Jordan for his commitment and effort in the red vee since he joined the Saints.

“His professionalism is second to none and we’re sure he will want to finish his Saints career on a high this year.”

Jordan is a former England under-18s Academy international and captain.

He joined Hull FC from Salford City Reds in 2010 and won a Grand Final and League Leaders’ Shield with Saints in 2014.

Turner will link up with his former Saints teammate Sia Soliola at the Raiders.
