The South Sydney Rabbitohs have signed Cowboys forward Ethan Lowe on a one-year deal.
Lowe was granted an immediate release from his North Queensland deal and joins Wayne Bennett's Rabbitohs outfit, having made 108 NRL appearances since his debut in 2013.
The 27-year-old was a premiership-winner with the Cowboys in 2015 and played in the 2017 grand final.
"I would like to thank the Cowboys, members and fans for making my time in North Queensland one of the best experiences of my life," Lowe told cowboys.com.au.
"Being part of the 2015 grand final win and the weeks that followed was something I will never forget.
"North Queensland will always hold a special place in my heart."
Rabbitohs general manager of football Shane Richardson said Lowe would add big-game experience and depth to the South Sydney forward pack.
"Ethan has shown that he has what it takes to play at the top level of the game and has been part of a premiership-winning club in North Queensland," Richardson said.
"He has a number of strings to bow which will benefit our squad and he is an edge back-rower who will create more competition for spots in our back row throughout the season.
"He will have an opportunity to put his best foot forward under Wayne [Bennett] here at Souths and we’re all looking forward to seeing what he can achieve in red and green."
