The National Rugby League club, South Sydney, have bolstered their backline options by signing the dual international Lote Tuqiri for the upcoming season.

Tuqiri, who recently returned to Sydney following a three-month stint with Irish side Leinster, left the Wests Tigers at the end of the last season having made just four appearances in 2013 after struggling to recover from a broken arm.

The 34-year-old former Brisbane and Queensland winger returned to the NRL in 2010 after an eight-year stint in rugby union and enjoyed an excellent season, playing 27 games and crossing for 18 tries.
