The St George Illawarra Dragons announced on Friday that Peter Mata’utia and Josh Ailaomai have both respectively agreed to terms on contracts that will see them join the Club next season.
Peter Mata’utia, 22, is presently contracted to the Newcastle Knights and has agreed to terms on a two-year contract that will see him join the Dragons until at least the end of 2015.
The versatile outside-back has played six first-grade NRL games to date and was earlier this season named in the NSW Cup Representative squad as well as Toa Samoa in the Pacific Cup (2009).
Josh Ailaomai, 22, is presently contracted to the Sydney Roosters and has agreed to terms on a one-year contract that will see him join the Dragons until at least the end of 2014.
The prop is an integral part of the Rooster’s NSW Cup feeder-club the Newtown Jets who won the Premiership last season.
Both players will join the Dragons in November along with Mike Cooper (Warrington); Dylan Farrell (South Sydney Rabbitohs); Joel Thompson (Canberra Raiders); Gareth Widdop (Melbourne Storm) and Sam Williams (Canberra Raiders).
