Catalans hooker Micky McIlorum has signed a two-year contract extension.

McIlorum, 31, is in his second season in the south of France and is now committed to the Dragons until the end of 2021.

He said: “I am very happy to have signed a two year extension to my Catalans contract.

“Me and my family have enjoyed our time in the Catalan region and are very settled in France.

“Thanks to Steve and Bernard for showing their faith in me and extending my deal and I hope I can repay them with my performances on the pitch.

“I would like to say a big thank you to the fans for their support since I arrived and welcoming me and my family to the club and this proud region.

“I hope myself and the team can give them the success and trophies that they deserve.

“I will be doing everything I can in these next two and a half years to ensure this happens for the club.”

McIlorum was part of the victorious Challenge Cup side of last season, and recently scored a try in the win over former club Wigan at the Nou Camp.
