Catalans sign Dave Taylor for 2016

Catalans Dragons have confirmed that they have signed Dave Taylor from the Gold Coast Titans for 2016, with the player signing a two-year deal.

The 27-year-old prop or back rower began his NRL career at Brisbane Broncos in 2006. He has also played for South Sydney as well as Gold Coast, and has six State of Origin caps for Queensland.

“I’m really excited about this next phase of my playing career and can’t wait to join the Catalans Dragons. I have always had a desire to play in the Super League and I can’t think of a better side to be playing for,” he said.

“My wife Ash and our two young daughters are extremely excited about the opportunity to live in such a wonderful city like Perpignan.

“It will also be amazing for us to be able to enjoy the culture of such an amazing country like France together as a family.

“I can’t wait to run out on the pitch next season in front of the supporters and do my best to hopefully win some silverware for the Catalans Dragons.”

Dragons coach Laurent Frayssinous is delighted to have added a player of such pedigree to his squad for next season.

“The signing of Dave Taylor is fantastic news for the club and the competition,” he said.

“We are delighted to be able to attract a such quality player to the Super League. He will help us to make one step forward thanks to his experience at the very top level.

“His speed, agility and capacity to offload combined with his size will make him a good weapon for us.”
