Julian Bousquet signs new Catalans deal

Catalans prop Julian Bousquet has signed a three-year contract extension that will keep him at the club until the end of 2023.

The 28-year-old has made 182 appearances for the Dragons since joining the club from Lezignan back in 2012. He has earned 12 caps for France.

Catalans coach Steve McNamara said: “Julian is entering the prime years of his career and it was an easy decision for us to extend his contract.

“He has established himself as a starting front-rower and his influence over the team is consistently growing.

“He has matured and improved in every department due to a really strong work ethic and the new contract is a reward for the effort and commitment he has shown.”

Bousquet added: “I’m delighted to stay at the Dragons and appreciate the faith the club has in me.

“I want to play here and to remain a one-club man and that’s why it was really easy to find an agreement with the club.”
