New Zealand international Bronson Harrison will bolster the St George Illawarra forward pack next year after officially gaining a release from his NRL contract at Canberra.
The skilful back-rower had been linked with the Dragons for a number of weeks and has now confirmed signing a two-year deal.
The 27-year-old will join the club for pre-season training immediately.
Harrison, a veteran of 162 NRL matches, debuted for the Wests Tigers back in 2004, before switching to the Raiders in 2009.
Injury and poor form made for a disappointing 2012 for Harrison and he was eager for a fresh start in Sydney.
Harrison possesses a dangerous offload and strong ball-running ability and the Dragons will be hoping he can provide spark to their forward pack, especially following the loss of representative second rower Beau Scott.
"The Dragons are a fantastic club with a proud tradition and great record and I'm looking forward to joining them," said Harrison.
"I want to thank them for giving me an opportunity to continue my NRL career and I can't wait to join the players for pre-season training."
