Toulouse have made former Huddersfield hooker James Cunningham their first recruit for their Super League campaign.

The 27-year-old began his Super League career with home-town club Hull before going on to play for London Broncos and Toronto Wolfpack.

He said: “I’m really happy to join Toulouse. I have been looking forward to this trip every season and I am happy to make my home in the Pink City.

“I can’t wait to start this adventure and show that the club’s place is in the Super League.”

Toulouse president Bernard Sarrazain said: “With this new chapter which is opening for our club, we must strengthen ourselves with experienced players, this is the case with James.

“He has a lot of experience in the Super League and that’s what we’re looking for.”
