The Dragons have announced the signing of Broncos front-rower Korbin Sims on a three year deal.
Sims will join his brother Tariq at the Dragons in 2019, after two seasons at Brisbane following four years at Newcastle to begin his NRL career.
The 26-year-old has played 112 first grade games, and has 12 tries to his name.
St George Illawarra’s Director of Rugby League Pathways and List Management Ian Millward was thrilled to add Sims to the mix, and can’t wait to see Sims join up with the Dragons’ young forward pack.
“Korbin has some really good years in front of him. We believe he is coming into his prime, and he brings us some stability and experience as well as being a really good replacement for Leeson moving forward,” Millward told dragons.com.au.
“The club spoke to (Broncos coach) Wayne Bennett about Korbin, and he gave him a big rap as a person and coachable-wise, and where he sees him developing moving forward. We’re really pleased to get him on board.
“We have some really good emerging forwards that Korbin will help in their development too, like Luciano Leilua, Jacob Host, Josh Kerr, Jackson Ford, Reece Robson and the like.
“We know how close Korbin was to playing for Queensland, and he’s seen the advancement of (brother) Tariq to play Origin this season as well as Jack de Belin, Paul Vaughan and Tyson Frizell so we know he’s keen to follow in their footsteps.”
