Leeds Rhinos have signed Gold Coast Titans hooker Beau Falloon for the 2016 season.
The 28-year-old joins the Treble winning side on a one year deal following the announcement that Paul Aiton will join the Catalans Dragons next year.
We are pleased to have signed a player with the experience that Beau has. He has been playing in the NRL for eight seasons and, having spoken to him, I know he is very excited about the challenge of coming to England and playing with the Rhinos. We obviously lost Paul Aiton for a long period this season and it will be good to have more options in our squad for next season and Beau certainly offers that as we look to build on our achievements in 2015."
