Former New Zealand Kiwi and Wests Tigers hooker Manaia Cherrington will join the Suzuki Brisbane Tigers for the 2022 season.

Cherrington, 27, was a member of the Redcliffe Dolphins Intrust Super Cup side for the past season.

In 2021, he scored 2 tries, had 5 offloads and made 173 tackles (93.5% efficiency) from 11 games.

The Wentworthville Magpies and Quakers Hill Destroyers junior will link up with former Coach JB (Jon Buchanan) after being a part of his Souths Logan Magpies Intrust Super Cup squad in 2018 and 2019.

“I’ve played under JB before and I know what he’s about…he’s a very honest person”, said Cherrington.

“I’ve always had a soft spot for the Tigers, and not only that the opportunity to play some decent footy is one of the main reasons of my move.

“The Tigers are a strong club and I hope I can add to that.

Speaking of his 2022 season aspirations, Cherrington said “I just want to play good footy, be injury free and just enjoy my footy again”.
