2023 NRL Signings Tracker: Graham extends Rabbitohs deal; Katoa remains at Storm

South Sydney centre Campbell Graham will remain at the club for a further three years after signing a contract extension until at least the end of the 2027 season.

Graham, who toured with the Kangaroos in their successful World Cup campaign last year, is on the comeback trail from a sternum injury after missing a potential selection in the recent State of Origin series.

The 24-year-old has been a mainstay in the Rabbitohs line-up since making his NRL debut in 2017 as a teenager with 125 appearances.

Meanwhile, Melbourne back-rower Eli Katoa has also signed a three-year contract extension with the Storm, keeping him at AAMI Park until at least the end of 2027.

The former Warrior – who arrived at the Storm ahead of the 2023 season – has been sidelined since Round 15 after undergoing surgery on his right eye, but was looking to be back on the field soon.

Warriors star Shaun Johnson will play a 14th season in the NRL in 2024 after agreeing to a new one-year contract extension with the club on Thursday.

Johnson has put pen to paper on another 12 months at the Warriors after making a return to the Auckland club in 2022.

“Everyone can see how happy he is being back home in Auckland and around the club he loves so much,” Warriors coach Andrew Webster¬†said in a statement.

Meanwhile, the Sea Eagles have extended the contract of in-form prop Taniela Paseka on a new two-year contract extension until the end of 2026.

It follows confirmation the Sea Eagles have signed Roosters prop Matt Lodge on a train and trial contract for the remainder of the season.

Further south and the Dragons have re-signed winger Mikaele Ravalawa on a three-year contract extension, while also extending forwards Jack de Belin and Michael Molo after both activated player options for next season.

Meanwhile, emerging outside back¬†Savelio Tamale¬†will join the Dragons’ Top 30 next year. A member of the NSW U19s side, Tamale came through the ranks from SG Ball before making his NSW Cup debut against the Roosters in April.

After 12 years and 167 NRL games, including the 2012 and 2014 grand finals, Josh Reynolds has announced his retirement.

The Knights have confirmed forward Lachlan Fitzgibbon will depart the club at the end of the season to join English Super League club Warrington Wolves.

The Broncos have¬†announced¬†that outside back¬†Tristan Sailor¬†will remain in Brisbane for the 2024 and 2025 seasons as part of the club’s NRL squad.
