St George Illawarra Dragons have confirmed the signing of forward Ben Murdoch-Masila on a two-year deal in the NRL.

The 31-year-old Tonga international makes the move following his release from the New Zealand Warriors. He featured in 27 games in two seasons after returning from a five-year stint in the Super League at Salford and Warrington.

Murdoch-Masila had been linked with a move back to Super League with the Catalans Dragons following the release of Dylan Napa. However, he has signed for seasons 2023 and 2024 with St George Illawarra in the NRL.

“Ben is a quality player with great experience and he certainly provides what we have been looking to build within our forward pack,” said Dragons general manager of football Ben Haran.

“We are excited to see him join the playing group next week and look forward to the impact he will have at the club.”
