St George Illawarra Dragons fans, rejoice, for key play-maker and dual international Tyla King re-signing with the club for two seasons. 

A recent trailblazer and fan favourite for Kiwi athletes across both codes, King, 29, appeared in all games for the NRLW Dragons side in season 2023, and she is excited to be back in the Red V.

“I’m so excited to be back with the Dragons,” King said.

“I absolutely loved my time last season with the team and knew it wouldn’t be a one-and-done type thing.

“I’ve still got so much to learn in the sport and I’m super excited to continue that growth with the team and Sowie.”

Dragons NRLW coach Jamie Soward is pleased that King has opted to return and knows that she will only get better and better in rugby league.

“Her making the decision last year to join the Dragons was a really proud one that I didn’t take lightly, and the club understood how important that was,” Soward said.

“For her to go and represent her country at the Olympics and decide she’s going to finish up her sporting career at the Dragons shows where the club is at.

“It shows how much we look after our players and that we want them to be the best, but we also want them to get better.”

Soward also looks forward to the ongoing partnership with fellow half Raecene McGregor and cannot wait to see her professionalism moving forward.

“We can’t wait to have Tyla back for another two years,” Soward continued.

“She had a great first NRLW season capped off with beating the Jillaroos in the halves with Raecene.

“It’s really exciting that we get to have Tyla back and what she means to our club and her professionalism going forward is something that we’re really proud of.”
