Wigan have signed Cronulla and Australian Test Centre Phil Bailey on a three-year contract.
Wigan Head Coach, Brian Noble, said: "This is great news especially following the signing of Trent Barrett.
�I know Phil well and he is an honest and genuine player who never stops trying. He approaches every game with a never-say-die attitude and will give you his best whether it's in the centre or in the second row."
Noble continued: "What really pleases me is the fact that the Wigan club are not losing any of its ambition even though we find ourselves in a difficult situation this season.
�We have certainly not accepted our present position and we have 14 games left to move up the Super League table."
Bailey added: "I am totally thrilled to be joining the Wigan club. I had a long conversation with Brian Carney and Adrian Lam and they both consider Wigan to be the best club they have ever played for and a great part of their Rugby League lives.
�I can't wait to play outside Trent Barrett who is one of the best ball distributors in the game.
�I know Wigan are struggling at the moment but everyone in Australia still believes in the club and I will be joining Wigan next year when I will give my best to help them get back to the top."
