New recruit Sisa Waqa at Canberra Raiders pre-season training.

The Canberra Raiders will release winger Sisa Waqa at the end of June this season, to take up a new deal with French Rugby Club FC Grenoble the club announced on Monday.

Waqa will remain part of the Raiders NRL squad until his release and will continue to train and play with the squad.

Waqa said the decision to move to French Rugby was a tough one and said he remained committed to the Raiders until his release is finalised.

"The Raiders have been great for my career and my family and it has been a hard decision for me to make," Waqa said. "I’m looking forward to finishing my time with the Raiders on a high and I’ll keep working hard at training with the boys and hopefully get a chance to play again for the Raiders before I leave the NRL."
