New Vikings signing and former NRL Grand Finalist Corey Thompson will arrive in the UK on November 12th.
The 25-year-old has had his visa application rubber-stamped and will fly over to join up with his team-mates ahead of a gruelling pre-season.
Thompson moves to Super League on a two-year deal from Canterbury Bulldogs, where he made 35 starts in the NRL, all but one on the wing.
He played on the wing in the 2014 NRL Grand Final defeat to South Sydney Rabbitohs and scored a try in the play-off semi-final victory over Manly Sea Eagles.
The Brisbane-born back has already expressed his excitement at joining the Vikings.
You can read an interview with Thompson from after he signed by clicking here.
Book your place to watch Corey and his new team-mates at the Select Security Stadium next season by joining the Viking Stronghold.
