Agar gets Frayssinous backing

Richard Agar has got the backing of Catalan Dragons boss Laurent Frayssinous following his appointment as France head coach.

Frayssinous was one of the leading candidates for the job to replace the departing Bobbie Goulding.

“It’s a good appointment. I have been lucky enough to share ideas with him and he’s a very good guy.” Frayssinous said.

“The French national team needed a Super League coach, someone at that level, and Richard ticks all the boxes. I talked to him last weekend for an hour and I will help him as much as I can. We’ve got the same interest in wanting the France national team to perform at the World Cup.”

Richard Agar’s Wakefield travel to face Catalan on Saturday and admits the majority of the French squad will be from the Dragons.

“We’ve had to put the 40 man squad together this week for France to announce at the weekend and it’s fair to say most of the guys playing for Catalan at the weekend will be in the squad.

“It’s been good to have a close look at them but at the same time my focus has very much been about how much we’re going to put in a performance against them this week.”
