Leigh Centurions have announced the signing of experienced forward Brendan Elliot ahead of the Super League campaign.
The versatile Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles utility back, 27, has played NRL for the last seven seasons, with Sydney Roosters, Newcastle Knights and Gold Coast his previous clubs.
Reacting to the news, Elliot said: “I’m really excited about the journey ahead. I nearly came over to Leigh in 2018 but it didn’t work out and so it will be great to finally make the move.
“I spoke to Peter Matautia about Leigh and he said it was a really good club and the fans were passionate about rugby league.
“It’s a massive opportunity for me to come to play in England and everyone I’ve spoken to from the club so far have been extremely welcoming and passionate about the game. I’m looking forward to getting in and around the club and doing my best for the team.”
Head Coach John Duffy added: “Brendan is a valuable addition and brings a lot of NRL experience to our club.
“I’m looking forward to Brendan joining our group and coaching him. He’s played in some good teams and under some good coaches. I’m sure he will enjoy his time at our club and settle in quickly and add a lot to the group.”
