The Manly Warringah Sea Eagles have secured the signing of former New Zealand international Epalahame Lauaki.
Lauaki will join the club on a one year deal and will add some much needed experience and depth to the Sea Eagles forward pack following the retirement of Richie Fa'aoso earlier in the year.
The Kiwi and Tongan international began his career with the Warriors, playing 69 times for the club between 2004 and 2008. He moved to the UK enjoying stints with both Hull and Wigan before being released this early this year.
He is currenlty finalising his relocation to Sydney and will join up with the squad in the coming weeks.
