Korbin Sims will have the chance to play alongside brother Tariq, after signing a 3-year deal with the St George Illawarra Dragons.
Sims will depart current club the Brisbane Broncos at season’s end, with the Gerringong junior returning to his roots.
Sims, also a Fijian international, has so far played in 112 NRL games, and the club believe his best is yet to come.
“Korbin has some really good years in front of him,” Director of Rugby League Pathways and List Management Ian Millward said
We believe he is coming into his prime, and he brings us some stability and experience as well as being a really good replacement for Leeson moving forward.”
“The club spoke to (Broncos coach) Wayne Bennett about Korbin, and he gave him a big rap as a person and coachable-wise, and where he sees him developing moving forward.
We’re really pleased to get him on board.”
The signing of Korbin will help continue the development of some of their flourishing young forwards.
“We have some really good emerging forwards that Korbin will help in their development too, like Luciano Leilua, Jacob Host, Josh Kerr, Jackson Ford, Reece Robson and the like,” Millward continued.
