FIJI Bati winger Sisa Waqa is switching allegiances in the National Rugby League (NRL) competition and has inked a move to the Canberra Raiders.

The confirmation of the new signing was announced on the Raiders website earlier this week.

Waqa scored a try for his current club Melbourne Storm against the Raiders in their clash last weekend in which the Storm emerged victorious 28-14.

Raiders CEO Don Furner said the 27-year-old would join the club next season on a two-year contract.

"Sisa is an experienced player with an outstanding try scoring rate and we are excited about him joining our club in 2015," Furner was quoted as saying on raiders.com.au

Waqa is expected to earn about $A430,000 per annum which would be about $F740,000 or more if calculated into Fijian dollars.
