Moa latest to depart Dragons

Catalans Dragons have confirmed prop forward Sam Moa is leaving the club.

The former New Zealand and Tonga international, 34, has not been offered a new deal and leaves after four seasons at the Dragons.

Moa signed for the Dragons in 2017, and was part of the side that helped them to win the Challenge Cup a year later.

The prop, who also played for Hull FC and the Sydney Roosters where he won the NRL title, made 90 appearances at Catalans, scoring eight tries.

Reacting to the news, Moa said: “My time with the Dragons has come to an end. I have enjoyed every moment in this jersey and there has been some hard times  but also some moments I will cherish forever.

“A part of my career and life I will never forget. I’m looking forward to the next chapter of my life.”

Head Coach Steve McNamara added: “Sam`s contribution to the Catalans Dragons over the four seasons he has played has been immense.

“He has been vital in improving the standards on and off the field. He joined a club that fought off relegation by winning the million pound game and finishes it with the team back in the play offs for the first time since 2014, whilst being part of the first ever Catalan team to win its inaugural trophy at Wembley in 2018.

“As a player his on field record speaks for itself but his attitude, professionalism, honesty and ability to unite a group off off the field surpasses those achievements.”
