Finefeuiaki to join Dolphins from 2025

The Dolphins have landed another great signing with the recruitment of boom back rower Kulikefu Finefeuiaki.

The Cowboys’ forward has agreed to a three-year deal with the Dolphins that will allow him to return to south-east Queensland.

A product of the Ipswich Jets, Finefeuiaki will join the Dolphins at the end of this year and will be at the club until at least the close of NRL season 2027.

Dolphins’ chief executive Terry Reader said the signing of 20-year-old Finefeuiaki fit perfectly with the club’s recruitment strategy.

“We are very excited to have Kuli join the Dolphins for the next three seasons, starting in 2025,” said Reader.

“The Dolphins have always said that recruitment was not just about year one and that we would take our time to build the squad and gain in strength with the right players."

We have already shown results that underline that growing depth in the squad this season and this is another great step for the club as we move forward.

“Kuli is also another example of a kid from south-east Queensland having the opportunity to come home to play NRL near his friends and family.”

After playing Mal Meninga Cup for Ipswich, Finefeuiaki moved to Townsville and played for the Blackhawks in the Hostplus Cup.
