Brayden Wiliame signs new deal with Catalans

Catalans centre Brayden Wiliame has signed a new two-year contract with the club.

The Fiji international made his professional debut for Parramatta Eels in 2013 and went on to play 29 NRL games for Parramatta, Newcastle Knights and Manly Sea Eagles.

Wiliame joined Catalans ahead of last season and has scored 17 tries in 42 Super League appearances for the Dragons.

On extending his stay in Perpignan, the 25-year-old said: “I am happy to be staying with the Dragons for another two years.

“I thank the club for giving me the opportunity to come across from Australia two years ago.

“Our best football is ahead of us and I am happy to have sorted my future at Catalans leading into the Challenge Cup final.”

Catalans coach Steve McNamara is delighted to see the Fijian pen a new deal.

He said: “Brayden has been one of our most consistent performances over the season.

“He has made huge efforts to improve all aspects of his game. In particular, he has added some real quality to his attack whilst physically getting himself in great shape.

“He is very popular within the playing group and at the age of 25, we feel his best years are still ahead of him.”

Wiliame has earned seven caps for Fiji, scoring two tries.
