Catalans Dragons have confirmed that veteran half back Thomas Bosc has signed a new one-year deal at the club.
Bosc will also assist Jerome Guisset with coaching the Dragons’ reserve grade side next season, with a view to him developing a coaching career once his playing days end.
“I’m really happy to have re-signed with the Catalans Dragons,” said Bosc.
“I’ve taken my time before taking a decision but I feel good and I’m ready to start a new season. I love this sport, I love this club but I would make sure that my body allowed me to keep playing at this level.
“I’m sure of my choice now and I’m delighted to stay another season.
“I’m really happy with the project offered by the club, being named as the U-23 assistant coach.
“I’m 33 now and I think about my career after rugby. I had my first experience last year with the U19 team and I’m excited to continue learning alongside Jerome Guisset.”
Dragons coach Laurent Frayssinous is delighted to be able to call on the club’s record points scorer for another season.
“I’m really happy to keep Thomas at the club next season,” he said.
“He is an important player in our squad, for his versatility at the key positions in the halves, as a hooker or a fullback but also for his qualities and his values.
“He is an example of professionalism and humility. I can only be pleased with his decision to stay at the club, he will continue to share his experiences with the younger players and continue learning for his career after rugby.”
