Tuitavake, 22 and Fifita, 22, are rated two of the best young middle forward prospects in the game.
They were part of Manly’s 30-man roster and were expected to have long careers on the northern beaches.
Their signings are a huge vote of confidence in Griffin, who also met their parents in recent days.
Tuitavake and Fifita will help the Dragons fill some of the remaining spots they still had available in their 30-man squad this season.
