Saints has confirmed the signing of big-hitting Samoa prop Lama Tasi.
The 25-year-old penned a two-year deal and will join the Super League champions at the end of this season.
He currently plies his trade with Salford but previously lined-up for Sydney Roosters and Brisbane Broncos in the NRL.
Saints head coach Keiron Cunningham said: “Lama is a great acquisition for the club and will add a great deal to our pack next season.
“He carries the ball well; is big, strong and powerful and at 25 it’s frightening to think he still can improve.
“We are all excited at the prospect of working with him.
“With the youngsters we have coming through the system here, as well as the experience the senior players bring, we have a good balanced squad for this season and beyond.”
Lama, who stands at 6ft 3in and tips the scales at 16.5 stones, was nicknamed the Bindi Brusier by Aussie fans because of his no-holds barred style of play.
Originally from Auckland, he moved to Queensland as a three-year-old.
As a youngster he played for Manly’s juniors and represented the junior Kiwis before signing a deal with the Sydney Roosters.
