Souths sign Asotasi

South Sydney has signed Bulldogs prop Roy Asotasi to a five-year deal.

The 24-year-old New Zealand international joins Test team mates Nigel Vagana and David Kidwell and Parramatta forward Dean Widders at the Rabbitohs from 2007. The newly privatised club says it beat rivals the Sydney Roosters and Wests Tigers to Asotasi's signature.
