Whitley signs Catalans extension

Catalans Dragons back rower Matt Whitley has signed a two-year contract with the club.

The England Knights International has put pen to paper on a contract extension that will secure his future at the Stade Gilbert Brutus until the end of the 2022 season.

The 24-year-old back-rower joined the club from the Widnes Vikings in 2019 and has already scored 36 tries in 141 games in his career.

Reacting to the news, he said: “It’s a club I feel is heading in the right direction and I’m looking forward to being a part of this good group of players and staff for another two years.

“After reaching the semi finals in 2020, I’m looking to push on this next upcoming season to win something for this great club.”

Head Coach Steve McNamara added: “Matt has progressed and matured significantly in his two seasons in France.

“He and his family have settled into France incredibly well. His performances have been consistently good and we look forward to him having a growing influence within the team.”
