Warrington land Salford forward Lama Tasi

Warrington have confirmed the signing of Salford forward Lama Tasi on a one-year deal.

The 28-year-old has signed a deal with the Wolves for the 2019 season and joins from the Red Devils.

A Samoa international, Tasi began his professional career in the NRL and made his professional debut for Sydney Roosters, before enjoying spells at Brisbane Broncos, St Helens and Salford.

On his move to Warrington, Tasi said: “The club speaks for itself with everyone in the squad and the signings they are making.

“I’m good mates with Bennie (Murdoch-Masila) too and it will be good to play with him again. This is a massive opportunity for me and I’m looking forward to pre-season and hopefully making a difference next year.

“I was fortunate to have Pricey (Steve Price) coach me in 2013 with Samoa, that’s how we first met, and he’s done well with the Wire, he’s turned things around this year. I’m excited about this opportunity and to hopefully look at winning some silverware.

“I work hard at my role in the team and will give 100%. I will enjoy the offseason with my family now and then look forward to meeting the team.”

Warrington coach Steve Price added: “I worked with Lama with the Samoa national team a number of years ago and I like what he brings.

“He brings a fair amount of intent to his play and he’s aggressive which I like all my forwards to be. He’s got a bit of footy in him also. It’s a great acquisition for us.”
