Newcastle Knights have signed David Fa'alogo from Huddersfield for the 2013 NRL season.
The 32-year-old back-row forward, who won 12 caps for New Zealand, was not offered a new contract by the Giants.
Fa'alogo has spent the last three years in Super League after joining Huddersfield from South Sydney.
Knights coach Wayne Bennett said: "David is coming here on a one-year contract, with an option for a second year if he performs in 2013.
"He wanted to finish his career in Australia and at a club that is going places so that is pretty much the conversation we had."
