Jonus Pearson has officially signed a two-year deal with the Gold Coast Titans after one season at the Dragons.
Pearson scored two tries in 10 games for St George Illawarra and was keen to return to Queensland, after starting his NRL career with the Brisbane Broncos.
It's good, I get to get my family back in Queensland and it's a fresh start for all of us," Pearson said.
"I want to rip into training and I'm excited about playing for the Titans next season.
"Obviously a goal is to get into that starting 13 but if not, I can guarantee I'll be working hard and I'll be looking to break into the side.
"From the couple of days I've been here I can see and feel a really good vibe around the place and I'm excited about the future here."
It comes after the Dragons announced Brayden Williame would be part of the squad on a two-year contract, after a stint with French club Catalans.
"He's a real threat with the ball in hand," Dragons recruitment manager Ian Millward said.
