The Redcliffe Dolphins have signed former Papua New Guinea Hunters rugby league centre Thompson Teteh.

The 27-year-old PNG Kumuls international was a key member of the Hunters during their first three seasons in the Queensland Cup.

He was in dynamic form prior to suffering a season ending injury in against the Townsville Blackhawks in August.

"Thompson is an international quality centre who will add strike, speed and power to our backline," Redcliffe Dolphins Football General Manager Grant Cleal said.

"As we have seen through crowd numbers at Intrust Super Cup games when the Hunters play here, there is a large number of PNG expats who live in suburban Brisbane. Their supporters can now see one of their own play for the Village Motors Dolphins, live every week rather than once or twice a season." Cleal said.

Teteh, who trialled with the South Sydney Rabbitohs two seasons ago, will join the Intrust Super Cup runners-up for pre-season training later this month.
