Remi Casty said it was a privilege to guide Catalans to their first ever major trophy.

The Dragons became the first ever non-British team to win the Challenge Cup as they beat Warrington Wolves 20-14 at Wembley on Saturday.

And the Challenge Cup win is the club’s first ever major trophy in its short existence. Casty was made up to be captain on the club’s historic day.

Casty said: “To be the first French captain to win the trophy with Catalans is huge.

“I work a lot for these moments. I spent a lot of years at the club I grew up with and I’m very pleased to have won this trophy.

“I’ve made a lot of sacrifices to become a professional player, but I’m very proud to have our name on that trophy now and I’m very pleased for my family, friends and the fans.

“Some fans were crying at the end so you can tell it means so much to us. We are very happy now, we have to enjoy the party.”

The Dragons will turn their attention to their Super 8s campaign this week as they face Castleford Tigers at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle on Saturday, 7:30pm kick-off.
