Hooker Mark Riddell has signed with the Sydney Roosters on a one-year deal, according to BigPondSport.com.

Riddell, a goal kicker known most notably for raising his arm before moving in for a shot, was approached by the Wests Tigers but declined their offer.

The 29-year-old has spent the last two seasons with English Super League club Wigan. He previously played with St George Illawarra and Parramatta.
