Some Australian rugby league fans may remember him from his stint with the Northern Pride and he now has another rugby league stint in Australia, with Tyrone McCarthy signing with the St George Illawarra Dragons for two seasons.
The Irish international has been a potent player in the past, enjoying stints with Super League sides the Warrington Wolves and Hull KR.
Able to play both lock and back-row, the Dragons are pleased to have signed him and are aware of his talents and execution whilst playing for the Super League sides.
â€œTyrone is a versatile player who has shown a keen interest in testing himself at the highest level in the NRL competition,â€ said Dragons Director of Recruitment & Retention Peter Mulholland.
â€œHe has established himself in the Super League competition and has a sound understanding of what is required to compete in the NRL from his time playing for the Northern Pride in the Queensland Cup.
â€œWe look forward to welcoming him to the Club during the off-season.â€
McCarthy will join the Dragons in November.
