Thompson and Fonua heading to the NRL

Wests Tigers have confirmed the signings of wingers Corey Thompson and Mahe Fonua on two-year deals starting in 2018.

Thompson played 35 games for the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs between 2013 and 2015, before linking up with Widnes in 2016 where he has scored 28 tries in 39 appearances.

A Tongan international in 2013 and 2015, Fonua (above) will join the Tigers after spending the last two seasons at Hull FC. He scored a try during Hull’s 2016 Challenge Cup final victory against Warrington.

Tigers’ boss Ivan Cleary said: “Both Mahe and Corey have had strong careers in the English Super League and we look forward to them bringing that experience back to Wests Tigers.

“We’re confident that their overseas experience coupled with their previous successful stints in the NRL will be a positive addition to our playing squad.”
