St George Illawarra has signed Queensland Origin and South Sydney enforcer Jaydn Su’A on a three-year deal from 2022 in a big boost for the club’s forward pack.

The Dragons confirmed Su’A will be joining the joint-venture club following 74 NRL games to date with the Rabbitohs and Brisbane dating back to 2016.

The one-time Samoan international has also played four Origins for the Maroons and has significantly improved his game under Wayne Bennett’s coaching at South Sydney this season.

Dragons general manager of football Ben Haran expects 23-year-old Su’A to provide the Red V forward pack with a point of difference.

“We have made no secret that strengthening our pack has been a recruitment priority for us of late and we’re pleased to bring a player to our club of Jaydn’s quality,” Haran said.

“While only young, he is at a good stage of his career, having already played representative football at State of Origin and international level.

“The most exciting thing about the recruitment of Jaydn over the coming three seasons is the extra dimension he will add to our squad.”

Su’A is the Dragons’ second signing for the 2022 season after fellow Queensland Origin representative Francis Molo agreed to terms with the club in March.

Both Su’A and Molo have signed with St George Illawarra until at least the end of the 2024 season.
