Toulouse add second Saints forward

Toulouse have announced the signing of St Helens forward Dom Peyroux on a two-year deal from 2021.

Peyroux, who will join teammate Joseph Paulo in France in 2021, joined the club from New Zealand Warriors ahead of the 2016 season.

In total he has made 120 appearances, scoring 19 tries thus far.

On making the move to France, Peyroux said: “I would like to thank Sylvain (HOULES) and Bernard (SARRAZAIN) for this great opportunity.

“I have always wanted to travel to France, play rugby and experience the culture and the lifestyle.

“I think Toulouse have a solid base of players / staff and I will do everything in my power to help the TO move forward to the Super League. “

Saints Head Coach Kristian Woolf added: “Dom has been at the Club for five years and has been a really respected and popular member of the squad. He had a great year in 2019 where he was a consistent starter as our starting back rower as he helped the Club to Grand Final success.

“We are well aware that this season he hasn’t quite had the opportunities he wanted and so we are really happy for him to have that at a great club and area in Toulouse.”
