The Dolphins have signed a two-year deal with one-time Queensland State of Origin winger Edrick Lee.
Lee, 29, will leave Newcastle at the end of the season to join the NRL’s new team, which will make its debut in the competition next year.
It comes a week after the Dolphins announced the signing of Robert Jennings, who will be joined on the outside by Lee and Jamaine Isaaco.

Lee has played 121 NRL games for Raiders, Sharks and Knights. He suffered an injury last season and has not been seen on the field at all.
He also represented the Maroons in three games of the 2020 Origin series, in which Wayne Bennett miraculously led the Queensland team to victory against all odds.
Lee will reunite with Bennett in Dolphin.
Terry Reeder, CEO of Dolphins, said: “We see Edrick’s class at the highest level and he is keen to be part of the Dolphins’ first team.
“We also appreciate the fight that Edrick has shown in recovering from a series of foot injuries to re-establish himself in the NRL.
“Such an attitude gives us confidence that he will be a major contributor to the dolphins in 2023 and beyond.
“The Dolphins are delighted to bring another product from Queensland back to their home state to be part of a historic time for the club.”
