Sio vows to continue solid form

KEN Sio has set himself one goal for 2014: to play good and consistent football.

It's been his forte since his made his debut in the final game of 2011.

It will also be his blueprint to make his way back into the top grade.

Sio was named on the wing for Wentworthville in the NSW Cup for round one.

Semi Radradra and Vai Toutai won the highly anticipated race for the wing spots.

Sio, who has played 45 NRL games, said he has spent the off-season working on different aspects of his game.

"It was tough pre-season, but it was enjoyable. I worked hard on my defensive and positional play. I also spent some time at fullback.

"I just want to keep working hard on my game and improve with every game."

Sio forms part of one of the most experienced NSW Cups teams in recent memory.

In fact, Wenty will have 348-games worth of NRL appearances courtesy of the likes of Chris Sandow, Ryan Morgan and Justin Hunt. In total, 10 players have had NRL experience.

For Sio, he wants to continue to build on his solid form he displayed at the Auckland Nines.

"It was a good chance to play with the new recruits and now we just need to convert our hard work in training to the games," he said.

Meanwhile in the NRL, Ben Smith, Manu Ma'u and Kenny Edwards will start in a revamped back row under new coach Brad Arthur. Kelepi Tanginoa has been named to return from injury early while last year's players' player Darcy Lussick and USA captain Joseph Paulo will start from the bench.
