Duport drafted in to replace Gigot

Vincent Duport has been drafted in to the Catalans squad to replace suspended Tony Gigot.

Duport could equal the Dragons all-time try scoring record if he crosses against London Broncos on Saturday night.

Gigot has been forced out having been handed a two-year ban for an incident involving an anti-doping official back in October.

The ban has been re-instated by French authorities having originally been reduced to three months, with 21 suspended.

The France international full-back sat out the first three months of the season as a result.

Duport has scored 85 tries in 183 games for Catalans, and could overtake Clint Greenshields record of 86.
