Masi, Sadrugu set to join Cowboys

Olympic gold medalist Iosefo Masi and fellow Fiji 7s squad member Taniela Sadrugu are set to join the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys for the 2022 NRL season.

The pair will fly to North Queensland for pre-season in November and will train full-time alongside the Cowboys NRL squad for the duration of the 2022 season.

Masi, 22, shapes as a versatile outside back in his transition to rugby league and will spend time training at wing, centre and fullback.

Sadrugu has played the majority of his rugby career as a flanker and will be trained as a forward upon joining the Cowboys.

They will join the Cowboys on Train and Replacement contracts, which allows them to train alongside the Cowboys NRL squad.

Following the pre-season both players will be allocated to one of the Cowboys’ three feeder clubs in the Queensland Cup, but will remain training alongside North Queensland’s NRL squad mid-week.
