Wests Tigers have today announced the signing of exciting young prospect Josh Addo-Carr on a one-year deal.

Addo-Carr has been a standout performer for the Cronulla Sharks Holden Cup side over the past two seasons, scoring a total of 28 tries in 44 games.

The La Perouse and Moore Park junior can play fullback, centre or wing and possesses an abundance of speed.

The 20-year-old expressed his excitement in joining a new Club for 2016.

“I’m really happy to sign on with the Wests Tigers,” Addo-Carr said. “I’m looking forward to ripping in at pre-season training and meeting the rest of the squad.

“It’s a great opportunity for me and I’m looking forward to making the transition from Under 20s into the senior grades.”

Addo-Carr’s versatility will further bolster the depth of outside backs in the playing squad, following on from the signings of both Justin Hunt and Jordan Rankin last week.

Josh will train full-time with the extended NRL squad once pre-season commences in November.
