The Dolphins have bolstered their future roster with the signing of Wests Tigers speedster Junior Tupou.

The 21-year-old Tonga Interntional will join the club in 2025 on a three-year deal as another impressive backline acquisition after English centre Herbie Farnworth and former Bulldog Jake Averillo joined the club for the 2023 pre-season.

Dolphins’ chief executive Terry Reader said Tupou will add even more depth to the squad as the Dolphins continue to establish themselves in the NRL.

“He is one of the most exciting young backs in the NRL at the moment so we will be excited to have him join our evolving roster,” Reader said.

“Junior is a powerful runner out of the back of the field so he will give us plenty of punch.

“At his age he also has plenty of room and time to improve his game, so we see him as a really valuable addition to the long-term future of the club.”
