Ken Sio (born 29 October 1990) is an Australian professional rugby league footballer who currently plays for the Newcastle Knights in the National Rugby League. He plays at wing and fullback. He previously played for the Parramatta Eels in the NRL, and the Hull Kingston Rovers in the Super League.

Club career[edit]

Parramatta Eels (2011–14)[edit]

Having played junior football for Wentworthville Magpies, Sio went on and played in the Under 20s Toyota Cup in the 2009 and 2010 seasons for Parramatta. Training with the first grade side before breaking his leg in a trial in 2011, returned halfway through the season for Cabramatta in the Bundaberg Red Cup.

Sio made his NRL debut in Round 26, 2011 on the wing against the Gold Coast Titans, also scoring his debut try in the same match. He was seen as the shining light in 2012, which was a terrible season for Parramatta, scoring 13 tries coming 6th in the NRL for the season. In June 2011, he re-signed with the Parramatta Eels until 2014 along with team mates, Matt Ryan and Joseph Paulo.[3] He was injured in Round 1 of 2013 against the Warriors, in which he was replaced by debutant Vai Toutai.

Hull Kingston Rovers (2015-16)[edit]

On 31 July 2014, Sio signed a contract to play for the Super League club Hull Kingston Rovers in 2015.[4]

He made his Super League début in round 1 against the Leeds Rhinos for Hull Kingston Rovers. He scored his first ever Super League try against the Wakefield Wildcats in round 2.

Newcastle Knights (2017-)[edit]

On 31 October 2016, Sio signed a 2-year contract to return to the NRL with the Newcastle Knights.[5]
