St Helens contract

Barba makes St Helens move

Barba, a former Dally M Medallist, was axed by Top 14 side Toulon earlier this month, ending his brief stint in rugby union.

The 27-year-old had been released by the Cronulla Sharks at the end of last year after a positive drugs test, having helped the club win the 2016 NRL premiership.

Barba's move to St Helens was confirmed on Wednesday, with the Super League side using the new marquee player rule.
