Wests Tigers sign Joe Ofahengaue as Josh Aloiai joins Manly

Wests Tigers have signed Joe Ofahengaue from Brisbane while fellow forward Josh Aloiai has joined Manly.

Tonga international Ofahengaue has joined the Tigers on a three-year contract as Samoa international Aloiai links up with the Sea Eagles on a three-year deal.

Ofahengaue, who made more than 100 appearances for the Broncos, has earned six caps for Tonga and has made two appearances for Queensland in Origin.

Tigers chief executive Justin Pascoe said: “Joe is a representative forward and another high level addition to our squad for 2021.

“We identified that Joe’s athletic ability and power can add great value to an already impressive group of young forwards and having another State of Origin representative player join the club further signals the positive direction that Wests Tigers is heading in.”

Aloiai played 90 games for the Tigers and has earned two caps for Samoa.

Sea Eagles chief executive Stephen Humphreys said: “We are very pleased to secure a quality forward and strong leader in Josh.

“I have no doubt that his on field contributions will be immense and he will also support our existing leadership group in ensuring that our standards and culture are that of a high performance and winning organisation.”
