Catalans retain Remi Casty

Catalans captain Remi Casty has signed a new two-year deal with the Dragons.

The France international will remain at the Stade Gilbert Brutus until the end of the 2020 season.

Casty became the Dragons’ all-time leading appearance maker earlier this season, having made 264 Super League appearances to date, scoring 25 tries.

On his new deal, Casty said: “I am proud and happy to extend my contract for two more seasons.

“The years go by but I still have the mental and physical freshness to give everything for the Dragons.”

Catalans coach Steve McNamara said: “Remi has been in career best form in 2018 and we are delighted that his long association with the club will continue for two more seasons.

“He is physically and mentally in a really good place, his application and desire to achieve success with the Dragons is there for everybody to see.

“As senior player and captain the influence he has is vital in helping us aim for consistently high levels of preparation and performance.”
