Catalans Dragons legend Remi Casty says he is ‘delighted and proud’ to return to the Super League club in a coaching role.

The 38-year-old has signed a one-year deal with the Dragons to become assistant coach to Justin Murphy, who is head coach of St Esteve, the club’s reserve side that plays in the French Elite 1 Championship.

Casty will also take over from Murphy at the club’s campus for the students’ rugby league training.

A 25-time French international, Casty made 337 appearances for the Dragons in 14 seasons with the club.

On returning to the Stade Gilbert Brutus, Casty said: “I’m delighted and proud to return to the club and to be involved into the development of the future Dragons’ players.

“I’m looking forward to working with Justin Murphy.”

Casty retired from playing at the end of the 2021 campaign after spending a season in the Championship with Toulouse Olympique. He represented France in two World Cups and made the Super League Dream Team on two occasions.


Remi Casty and Corentin Le Cam return to Catalans Dragons

Super League’s tallest ever player Corentin Le Cam has returned to rugby league with Catalans Dragons following a spell in rugby union.

The 24-year-old came through the academy at the Dragons before making his first team debut for the Super League club in 2021.

Le Cam is Super League’s tallest ever player, with the Frenchman standing at 6ft 8in, weighing around 120kg.

The 24-year-old left the Dragons at the end of last season and switched codes to rugby union Ceret Sportif after representing France at the Rugby League World Cup.

But after a short time in the 15-aside code, Le Cam has returned to the Dragons, where he will initially link up with the club’s reserve team St Esteve in the French Elite 1 Championship.

Perpignan-born Le Cam made 11 first team appearances for Steve McNamara’s side and has won three caps for France, representing his country at last year’s World Cup in England.
