St George Illawarra have signed veteran front-rower Aaron Woods, back-rower Jack Gosiewski and utility back Tautau Moga ahead of the Dragons' upcoming 2022 campaign.

The incoming trio have each signed a one-year deal with the Dragons.

Woods has played 233 first grade games to date, having spent time at the Wests Tigers, Bulldogs and Cronulla-Sutherland since his 2011 debut as well as 17 Tests for Australia and 14 Origins for New South Wales.

Gosiewski has played 52 first grade games, the majority of them coming at the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles where he also scored 11 tries.

The Dragons' long-held desire to further bolster the club's forward pack depth has led to Woods and Gosiewski's arrivals, according to general manager of football Ben Haran.

"We look forward to the arrival of Aaron and Jack, in addition to other key personnel, ahead of the upcoming season," Haran said.

"They will complement the development of our younger players and add another dimension to our evolving forward pack."

The ongoing impact of Covid pandemic, including the cancellation of the Knock On Effect Cup for a second-straight year, prevented an injury-free Moga from playing more rugby league in 2021.

With a 10-year NRL career to his name, the 27-year-old Moga brings an abundance of admirable qualities to the Dragons' senior squad.

"Tautau hasn't had the easiest rugby league journey but has shown plenty of resilience and fight to be in a position where he will certainly add value to our squad," Haran said.

"Tautau's experiences over the last decade will hold him in good stead as a seasoned member of our outside back ranks."

The arrival of Woods, Moga and Gosiewski follows the recent signings of Queensland Origin trio Moses Mbye, Francis Molo and Jaydn Su'A, explosive outside back Moses Suli and England international George Burgess.
