Catalans legend and record points scorer Thomas Bosc has confirmed he will retire at the end of the season.
Bosc, 34, has been a mainstay of the Dragons 12-year stint in Super League and has scored 1173 points in 221 Super League games.
He said: “It’s a really hard decision to take but the time has come to say stop. This season has been really tough for me, being sidelined for months is hard to accept when you still want and love playing.
“I am very privileged to have played my whole career here and I am very honoured to have worn the Catalans jersey. I will retire as a one club player which I am very proud of.”
The France international is the last remaining player at the club from its inaugural season in the competition in 2006.
Club Chairman Bernard Guasch said: “Thomas will remain among the legendary players of the Catalans Dragons.
“He had a tremendous carrier, one of the greatest carrier in the French Rugby League history. He is the last player who was here at the beginning and who remained loyal to the club.
“His qualities as a player and as a man allow him to gain the respect of everyone in the Super League.
“He is an exemplary player on and off the field, who has always given his best for the club, and he must remain a model for all, especially for future generations of players.
“I want now to keep him at the club as he could continue to share his experience and his values.
“The entire club wish him all the best in the future and we thank him for his invaluable contribution to the Catalans Dragons.”
