NZ Warriors have confirmed 2018 Intrust Super Premiership Team of the Year member Adam Keighran's arrival to the club ahead of the new year.
Named at centre amongst last season's honorary best, the versatile back looks likely to feature in the club's ISP halves pairing, following Mason Lino's move to Newcastle.
Alongside Keighran, Western Suburbs-turn-Mounties centre Taane Milne was also announced as a Warrior for 2019, albeit only on a train and trial contract.
Back in Sydney, ex-Dragon Reuben Garrick has found a new home on the Northern Beaches – the 21-year-old, NSWRL Origin Pathways player joining Manly Warringah's NRL Top 30.
North of the Tweed River, Brisbane Broncos this week confirmed the signing of touted halfback Sean O'Sullivan on a two-year deal from the Sydney Roosters.
O'Sullivan won man of the match honours in the ISP NSW Residents' 36-20 win over ISC Qld Residents, before later in the season figuring prominently for the Wyong Roos.
Turning out for the Junior Kangaroos in October, O'Sullivan will vie with Kiwis half Kodi Nikorima for a No.7 berth next season.
"I'm a halfback and played it all my life, so I see myself as a genuine number seven. "It will be good to learn off Kodi and 'Milf'," the 20-year-old told broncos.com.au upon his arrival.
"We have a lot of powerful big 'middles', so if I get the [NRL] chance it will help me being behind such a strong pack."
Also in Queensland, North Sydney Bears regular Jesse Arthars will continue his search for an NRL debut at the Gold Coast Titans.
"Jesse is a young player who has been part of two good rugby league systems and I'm looking forward to seeing how he continues to grow as a player," Titans coach Garth Brennan said of Arthars' arrival.
"Jesse has the ability to play fullback, centre or wing. He will add some depth and versatility to the Titans squad for 2019.
"I'm sure he'll be hungry to perform well with the hope of achieving his goal of making his NRL debut."
Elsewhere, North Sydney Bears have confirmed that Brad Deitz will return to the club in 2019, having turned out for the Wentworthville Magpies in 2018.
The Cabramatta junior was the Bears' captain prior to his departure, overseeing the side's run into the 2017 ISP finals series.
"I'm very happy to back with the Bears for 2019. The Club is building towards a big year with the new Roosters partnership, Jason Taylor coming on as coach and our pathways providing opportunities for up and coming players. This Club has a great culture and I can't wait to be back at North Sydney Oval," Deitz told the Bears' website.
