NRL club set to sign Super League talent

Manly Sea Eagles are one of NRL clubs considering looking at the Super League for potential recruitment.

In the past, Serious About Rugby League revealed that Manly were one of the clubs who could sign St Helens star Lewis Dodd.

They are interested in potential other Super League stars ahead of the 2025 season. This comes as the club announced a high profile release.

Manly Warringah Sea Eagles have today released winger Christian Tuipulotu from the final two years of his contract.

Contracted to the Sea Eagles until the end of 2025, Tuipulotu has been granted permission to explore other opportunities in his NRL career.

The 22-year-old scored 13 tries in 32 games for the Sea Eagles between 2021 and 2023. He also became a Test player for Tonga whilst at Manly.

“We thank Christian for all of his efforts at the Sea Eagles and wish him the best in the next chapter of his career,” Manly CEO Tony Mestrov said.

The St George Illawarra Dragons have announced the signing of Christian Tuipulotu on a two-year deal, effective immediately.

The 22-year-old joins from the Sea Eagles, having scored 14 tries in 33 NRL games over the past four seasons with a Test debut for Tonga in 2022.

Dragons head coach Shane Flanagan welcomed Tuipulotu to the squad ahead of the upcoming season.

“Christian is a big body who can add some strike out of the backfield and will be a valuable addition to the club,” Flanagan said.

“We have some good outside backs coming through at the Dragons but having lost Corey Allan for the season it was important for us to add some NRL experience to the backline for this year.”

The recruitment of Tuipulotu means the club now has 30 names signed to the top squad for 2024.

The club themselves are looking to work towards a much more successful season with Ben Hunt at the heart of it next to Kyle Flanagan in the halfbacks.
