Catalans Dragons have confirmed the signing of forward Joel Tomkins on a two year contract after he left Hull KR.
Tomkins had left the Rovers on passionate grounds, despite having just signed a three year contract at the club.
Tomkins said: “Since playing against the Dragons in their first ever Super League game in 2006, I have always admired the clubs ambition to grow and achieve success. Being given the opportunity to be a part of the Catalans Dragons is a great honour for me and I am determined to do what I can to help the club to achieve success in the coming years.”
Catalans Dragons head coach Steve McNamara said: “Joel is an experienced, hardened competitor who plays and trains to win. He will add great value to all within our organisation and I personally look forward to working with him again after previously coaching him for England.”
