The St George Illawarra Dragons on Tuesday finalised arrangements with Super League Club Warrington Wolves to sign prop-forward Mike Cooper for the next two seasons.
Warrington have agreed to release Cooper from his current contract at the end of this season granting him a move to the Dragons for the 2014 and 2015 seasons.
Cooper, 24, is contracted with Warrington until the end of 2014 but the club has agreed terms enabling him to sign for the Dragons and return to Warrington on a two-year contract following his two years in Australia.
“Mike is a rising young forward in the English Sper League who was keen to further develop his career in Australia,” said Dragons CEO Peter Doust.
“A number of people based in England have recommended Mike to us and he is a good value proposition for us over the next two seasons”.
