Brisbane have added some depth to their front-row stocks with the acquisition of Lama Tasi from the Sydney Roosters.

Tasi will join the Broncos for the remainder of the NRL season after gaining an immediate release from the tricolours.

The 23-year-old had slipped down the pecking order at the Roosters behind the likes of Jared Waerea-Hargreaves, Sam Moa, Luke O'Donnell and young gun Dylan Napa and has played only two games this season.

Tasi was chosen in Queensland coach Mal Meninga's Emerging Origin squad last season and has played 30 NRL games for the Roosters since 2011.

Football manager Andrew Gee said the 108 kilogram, 190 centimetre Tasi will add some starch to the Broncos forward pack.

"Lama will bring in some good size to our forward depth," said Gee.

"We are very pleased we were able to secure an immediate agreement for him so he can join our squad for the 2013 season."

Brisbane sit in 11th spot on the ladder ahead of their match against the Warriors in Auckland on Sunday and have struggled for go-forward for much of the season.

Tasi will join the Broncos next week.
