Catalans Dragons have confirmed that back rower Ugo Perez and loose forward Thibaut Margalet have signed full-time deals with the club.
Both players are products of the club reserve team Saint-Estève XIII Catalan.
Perez, 20, has inked a three-year deal. Margalet, who has played two Super League games for the Dragons since his debut in 2013, has signed a one-and-a-half year contract.
“It’s an honour to sign this contract,” said Perez.
“It’s a dream come true and it’s above all the reward for all the efforts done. It’s my hometown club and I’m really proud to commit with the Dragons.”
Margalet, 22, was also delighted to have committed to Catalans.
“I’m really happy to sign this contact,” he said.
“I have worked really hard to bounce back after several injuries over the last two years. It’s a great reward for me.”
Catalans Dragons CEO Christophe Jouffret added: “We are delighted that Ugo and Thibaut have signed their first professional contract.
“It’s important for us as a club to produce homegrown players and we are proud to keep them at the Dragons.
“Both have a bright future ahead of them and I look forward to seeing them continue to develop.
“It’s a great achievement for all the people involved in our Youth development system.”
“They are doing a great job and Ugo and Thibaut are the result of the hard work done from the early stages to the Dragons.”
