The North Queensland Toyota Cowboys have agreed to a one-year deal with outside back Brendan Elliot for the 2022 season.
Elliot has appeared in 66 NRL games over the course of seven seasons for the Roosters, Knights, Titans and Sea Eagles.
The 28-year-old spent the 2021 season in the UK Super League with Leigh Centurions, scoring three tries in 11 games.
Regarded as one of the most versatile outside backs in rugby league, Elliot has split his time in the NRL almost evenly between fullback, wing and centre.
“We are thrilled to sign a player of Brendan’s experience and character so late in the pre-season,” Cowboys General Manager of Football Micheal Luck said.
“Brendan adds genuine experience, depth and competition to our outside backs, which is valuable in any season, but amplified in 2022 with the uncertainty the COVID-19 pandemic could have on player availability during the year.”
Elliot will begin training with the Cowboys this week.
