Israel Folau can do something special for Catalans, says Sam Tomkins

Catalans full-back Sam Tomkins says the signing of Israel Folau has made the Dragons better all over the pitch.

The Australia dual-code international is one of the biggest signings in Super League history and will be hoping to make it three wins from three when they host Salford on Saturday.

Tomkins said: “I think teams have over-marked him.

“Castleford certainly did, they were putting a lot of defenders in front of him which made it pretty easy on the other side of the field.

“It was the same at the weekend at Hull. Ben Jullien scored two tries and they were both down to Josh Griffin being too worried about Israel Folau.

“I think as we play more and Izzy gets more used to us, we will see a bit more from him but it’s clear that he’s a real athlete and he’s going to do something special for us, hopefully.”
