Brayden Wiliame has swapped one Dragon for another after joining NRL side St George Illawarra.

The 26-year old former Manly and Parramatta centre left Super League side Catalans Dragons last week to return back to Australia.

It was widely speculated that he would be joining St George, but that has now been confirmed by signing a two-year deal.

Fiji international Wiliame won the Challenge Cup with Catalans in 2018 and Dragons Director of Pathways and List Management, Ian Millward told the club website: “Brayden is coming to the Dragons off the back of a great season where he was one of the Super League’s best centres.

“We have had dialogue with (former Sea Eagles coach) Trent Barrett about what he saw in Brayden as a player and how he goes about his business. Leeds Rhinos coach Richard Agar, who was on our staff last year, spoke really highly of Brayden also.

“He’s a real threat with the ball in hand which was on show when he played for Fiji during their end-of-season Tests. Dragons members and fans will enjoy watching Brayden play.”
