Galea, 30, has played for clubs such as Penrith, Wests and Canberra, but after only a couple of training sessions with the Vikings he is already impressed.
The utility forward had this to say on the club’s official website:
“Also the staff are very knowledgable and have already been helpful to me as a player.”
Galea will bring a wealth of experience with him to the Select Security Stadium after over 100 first grade matches in Australia.
“From the NRL, I learnt all about consistency, and how important it is in rugby league to stay at your peak,” he added.
“That for me is the hardest part because you can play one or two games at the same level, but ask somebody to do 26, and it becomes an altogether different challenge.
“To back it up week in, week out with injuries and other problems is really tough. You have to prepare to help your teammates out, because it is a squad game now.”
