The Wests Tigers have today signed two players to strengthen its roster for 2014.
Former Australian Schoolboy and Penrith Panthers utility Blake Austin has agreed to a two-year deal.
Experienced second-rower Cory Paterson will return to the NRL after signing a one-year deal with the hope of proving his value by the end of next season.
Paterson, 26, is currently playing for Hull KR in the English Super League after previous NRL stints with the Newcastle Knights and North Queensland Cowboys.
Wests Tigers Coach Mick Potter said both players will be very good additions to the NRL squad.
