South Sydney Rabbitohs have confirmed they have agreed a deal to sign Wigan prop Jeff Lima.
The 29-year-old joined the Warriors in 2011, going on to win the Lance Todd Trophy as Wigan lifted the Challenge Cup.
However the New Zealand international will now return to the NRL for the 2013 and 2014 seasons - with Lima having had previous spells at the Wests Tigers and Melbourne Storm.
And Rabbitohs coach Michael Maguire, who worked with Lima at Wigan, said: "Jeff has been a very consistent performer right throughout his career and will bring a wealth of experience to our club next season.
"He has a great work ethic, is professional in the way he conducts himself around training and in his preparation to play, and has been a high level performer week-in and week-out since I've been working with him.
"His experience will help the youth in our squad, he's a big addition to our team and will help to further strengthen our forward pack."
