Gigot commits to Dragons


Catalans Dragons Fullback and Centre Tony Gigot has signed a new two year contract at the club.

Gigot had been out after serving a two year ban for a failed drugs test, although he was cleared on Friday to return.

The French international said: “I’m really happy to be able to do again what I love and to be back in my club. I would like to thank Bernard (Gausch) and everybody at the club, even the fans, for their support. I’m now looking forward to being back at the Gilbert Brutus Stadium to start the training with my team-mates.”

This commitment will be welcome news for the Dragons, who desperately want to avoid a repeat of last season, where they had to survive the Million Pound Game to preserve their Super League status.

Head coach Steve McNamara added: “I’m delighted that Tony is available to continue his career. He will be a great addition to our current squad and adds real quality and strike to our backline.”
