Yaha commits to Catalans

Catalans Dragons winger Fouad Yaha has signed a two-year contract with the club, keeping him there until the end of the 2022 season.

The winger, who came through the club Academy, joined the club in 2015 to play for the U19 and made his Super League debut the season after. He was named Rookie of the year in 2016.

Yaha then joined Rugby Union club Agen in the Top14 at the end of the 2018 season but returned to the Dragons at the start of the 2019 season.

He has scored 61 tries in 100 appearances with the Dragons.

Reacting to the news, Yaha said: “I’m really happy to stay at the Dragons. I feel good in this club, I’m improving every year working with the staff and experienced players.

“We have a great squad with world class players and young talents who are coming through. I can’t wait to start the new season and to play again in front of our fans at the Gilbert Brutus stadium.”

Dragons Head Coach Steve McNamara added: “It’s great news that Fouad is continuing his career at the Dragons.

“He is one of the most popular player at the club. He is continually improving as a player. We all know his try scoring feats but he is striving to be a better all round player.”
