Leaving union? Setaimata Sa

London Irish midfielder Setaimata Sa is set to return to rugby league with Hull after an injury-ravaged spell in the Premiership.

Arriving on a three-year deal from Catalan Dragons in 2012, Sa was heralded as a prestigious replacement for outgoing Seilala Mapusua.

But it's proved a tremendously frustrating time for the 26-year-old, as a string of injuries combined with visa problems restricted his involvement on the pitch to one ten-minute spell off the bench last season.

After turning out three times for Irish so far this season, Sa is now out of action with a calf injury.

Though thought to be returning to fitness soon, it appears the New Zealand league international will soon be switching codes once more, with Hull reportedly interested having called off a deal for Bath's Tom Biggs.
