After months of speculation the St George Illawarra Dragons have confirmed that Penrith Panthers flyer Eto Nabuli would be joining the club on a one-year deal.
The 26-year old, who was discovered in Fiji by Andrew Johns and Brad Fittler while working as a hotel porter, has been a regular player for the Windsor Wolves NSW Cup team over the past two seasons, scoring 29 tries in 2013 and being named in the NSW Cup team of the year.
In 2014 he scored 17 tries for the Panthers NSW Cup team that won the Grand Final and made his international debut for Fiji in the test against Samoa on May 3.
“Eto is a young and exciting talent who will have the opportunity this pre-season to continue his development here at the Dragons,” Dragons Head Coach Paul McGregor told the club website.
“He has scored some great tries since playing competitively in the NSW Cup and possesses both speed and raw talent.”
Nabuli’s signing comes just days after winger Brett Morris announced he would be switching to the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs.
The Dragons also announced the signing of utility Nathan Green and winger Yaw Kiti Glymn to one-year deals.
