The Sydney Roosters have announced the signing of Brisbane's Dale Copley today.
Copley was said to be forced out of the Brisbane line-up after the signing of Gold Coast's James Roberts last month.
Copley has signed a new three year deal with the Roosters and will join the club with immediate effect.
Sydney's recruitment manager Peter O'Sullivan says Copley will become a vital asset to the side going forward.
“We see Dale taking his game to the next level here at the Roosters, and with his signature being sought by a number of clubs, we are pleased to have secured his services,” said O’Sullivan.
“A member of Queensland’s emerging Origin squad, Dale is a tremendous finisher, blessed with wonderful footwork and a natural try-scoring ability. There’s no doubt that he will add some terrific depth to our outside backs, and we look forward to watching his game develop in the coming seasons,” he added.
Copley made his debut in 2009, but has struggled with injury in recent times, scoring 31 tries from his 72 top grade level games.
