Brotherly love is a powerful thing and for Tariq Sims, he will have the opportunity to play alongside brother Korbin, with a move to the Newcastle Knights now confirmed.
The two year deal is one that has been rumoured for a while and having played in 60 NRL games, the Country rugby league side and Fiji, he brings a wealth of experience to the table.
â€œWe are obviously really pleased to sign Tariq, a powerful and competitive forward,â€ CEO Matt Gidley said.
â€œHe comes to the Club with plenty of football ahead of him but also with a lot of experience.
â€œTariq will bolster our forward pack while also playing a significant role in the development of our young forwards coming through the system.â€
It was an early release by his current club the North Queensland Cowboys that allowed the move to take place.
