Wales international Lloyd White has signed a new one-year deal with Toulouse for their first season in Super League.

The 33-year-old hooker joined the French club from Widnes ahead of the 2020 season, scoring five tries in 13 games for the club so far.

Cardiff-born White has won 20 caps for Wales but has recently been named in Jamaica’s train-on squad after he wanted to represent his heritage, but he has yet to play for the Reggae Warriors.

On committing to Toulouse, Lloyd White said: “I’m really happy to continue the adventure at TO for another year. It has been a fantastic season for all of us and I can’t wait to see what the Super League has to offer.

Toulouse president Bernard Sarrazain said: “Lloyd is an excellent player, coupled with a very pleasant boy. We couldn’t envision next season without him.”

Harrison Hansen says he is proud to be back in Super League after extending his stay with Toulouse.

The 36-year-old forward joined the French club ahead of the 2020 campaign, scoring four tries in 17 appearances so far.

Hansen helped Toulouse clinch promotion to Super League from the Championship on Sunday. He scored a try in their 34-12 win over Featherstone in the Million Pound Game.

He said: “I am very proud to be part of this special team for another year. Personally, it’s fantastic for me to come back to the Super League.”

Toulouse president Bernard Sarrazain said: “We couldn’t do without Harrison for our first season in the Super League. And we could see this year that he still had some under the hood.”

Harrison Hansen made his first team debut for Wigan at the age of 18 and went on to win two Challenge Cups and two Super League titles with the Warriors.

The Auckland-born forward made more than 400 career appearances for Wigan, Salford, Leigh, Widnes and Toulouse.
