St George Illawarra have confirmed the signing of Sydney Roosters forward Poasa Faamausili for the next two seasons, following the completion of all necessary documentation.
Faamausili will remain at the Dragons until at least the end of the 2022 NRL Telstra Premiership season.
The Auckland native Faamausili debuted in 2018 at the Roosters and has since played 28 NRL games to date, including a four-game loan stint at the New Zealand Warriors earlier in 2020.
The former Junior Kiwis front-rower will report for pre-season training in mid-November. The Dragons now have four spots remaining on their 2021 roster.
"Poasa is a highly talented, emerging front-rower that we are excited to secure for the next two seasons," NRL recruitment manager Ian Millward said.
"Incoming head coach Anthony Griffin was keen to get Poasa on board and saw him as a point of difference to our forward pack, with his genuine leg speed and physicality.
"Given his experiences in the Sydney Roosters' system, we are confident there is plenty of improvement in Poasa. We must also thank the Roosters for their cooperation with Poasa's signing."
Faamausili's arrival follows the retention of Mat and Max Feagai, Josh Kerr, Jackson Ford, Mikaele Ravalawa and Adam Clune as well as the promotion and re-signings of Junior Amone, Tyrell Sloan, Josh Coric and Jackson Shereb-Schmidt.
