St George Illawarra have announced Tyrell Fuimaono has signed with the Dragons on a two-year deal.

Fuimaono – who is capable of playing a number of positions – joins the Dragons until at least the end of the 2021 NRL Telstra Premiership season.

The 23-year-old former Rabbitoh and Panther has played 26 first grade games to date and is a welcomed addition to the Dragons' Top 30 squad.

The former Australian Schoolboy and 2016 member of the Holden Cup Under-20s Team of the Year commenced training with the Red V on Monday.

"I'm very excited to get among this group of boys and I'm keen to seize this opportunity that has been presented to me. I'm very grateful and excited to be at the Dragons," Fuimaono said.

"I'm looking to get back to my best footy and hopefully make my way into the NRL team. That's what everyone at this level strives to achieve; to become a consistent fixture in first grade will be really good for me."

Director of Rugby League Pathways Ian Millward said he was excited to see Fuimaono don the Dragons' colours following an injury-disrupted previous two years.

"Tyrell has faced a number of injury challenges in recent seasons, but with age on his side we're excited to see him hopefully reach his potential at our club," Millward said.

"He is capable of playing in the back row and the centres which will be fantastic for the wider squad's versatility and depth.

"With fellow young forwards such as Jacob Host, Josh Kerr and Jackson Ford pushing for first grade spots, Tyrell will add another dimension in the competition for spots leading into the season ahead."

Fuimaono joins Trent Merrin, Issac Luke and Brayden Wiliame as the Dragons' recruits so far ahead of the 2020 season.
