Toulouse sign Saints forward Paulo

Toulouse have completed the signing of forward Joseph Paulo from St Helens for the 2021 season.

Paulo signed for the Saints from Cronulla Sharks ahead of the 2019 season.

He holds a rare accolade of winning both the Super League and the NRL during his career. He won the NRL with Cronulla in 2016.

Paulo has made 36 appearances for the club, scoring one try.

Reacting to the news, he said: “I am really grateful to Sylvain (HOULES), President SARRAZAIN and the TO XIII club for giving me this opportunity to join the club and take part in this special project.

The XIII allows me to close the loop: I played in Toulouse in 2006 with the Australian Schoolboys then in 2013 with the USA and today, I will be able to say that Toulouse is my home.

“My wife and daughters are thrilled to discover French culture and life, and it’s something we will remember for a long time.

I can’t wait to meet the team, I already had the chance to play with Frankie (WINTERSTEIN) and Harrison (HANSEN) and I can’t wait to start working with the guys and start the new season. “

Toulouse President Bernard Sarrazain added: “ Whatever competition we will play in next year, we will ensure that we are in the Super League configuration, and the fact of having succeeded in bringing in a player of the caliber of Joseph shows that we are on the right track. “
