James Graham will return to St George Illawarra Dragons in an off-field role in 2021.
The Great Britain, England and St Helens legend retired from playing at the end of last season and will now return to Australia with the Dragons.
Graham’s role will help establish a female academy, with the NRL Women’s Premiership set to expand in 2021.
“This is all done with the goal of having a highly competitive NRLW team made up of great local talent.”
Graham made more than 400 club appearances for St Helens, Canterbury Bulldogs and the Dragons. He earned 53 caps for Great Britain and England.
