The Brisbane Broncos have officially announced the signing of experienced Cronulla forward Sam Tagataese

The premiership-winning prop inked a one-year deal, and began training on Wednesday with his new teammates.

The 31-year old looks to reignite his career, and with the chance to be coached under the guidance of Wayne Bennett, proved an offer that was too good to refuse.

“I am definitely excited especially as my partner is from Brisbane, and when I first moved to Australia I lived in Brisbane,” he said.

“I actually haven’t (met Bennett before) but I am definitely looking forward to it.

“I have heard so many good things about him, and just look at his record.

“And as my father-in-law said, he is a master coach.

“I am looking to getting the best out of myself at this point of my career and being coached by a great coach.”

Tagatese made 157 appearances during stints with Melbourne, Gold Coast, and Cronulla.
