Dragons sign Josh McGuire

Dragons sign Josh McGuire

St George Illawarra have confirmed the signing of North Queensland Cowboys forward Josh McGuire.

The former Queensland Origin representative will join the Dragons with immediate effect, until at least the end of the 2022 NRL Telstra Premiership season.

The dual Australian and Samoan international has played 232 NRL games to date across 13 seasons at the Brisbane Broncos (2009-18) and Cowboys (2019-21).

One spot now remains in the Dragons' Top 30 for the 2021 Premiership season following McGuire's signing.

"The club has made no secret of its desire to sign an experienced forward for our current campaign and Josh certainly fits this bill," Dragons general manager of football Ben Haran said.

"Josh's standing in the game, both at NRL and representative level, cannot be denied and he will certainly add plenty to our current squad.

"We're looking forward to seeing Josh hit the ground running at the Dragons upon his arrival to training later this week."

The 31-year-old's signature comes days after the recruitment of Billy Burns from the Penrith Panthers.

McGuire and Burns join Andrew McCullough, Daniel Alvaro, Jack Bird and Poasa Faamausili as 2021 Dragons recruits and follows the recent retention of livewire outside back Cody Ramsey.
