Tony Gigot re-joins Catalans

Tony Gigot has signed a new two-year deal with Catalans Dragons after winning his appeal against a two-year suspension by decision of the French anti-doping agency. 

The deal will see him stay at the Stade Gilbert Brutus until the end of the 2019 season.

Gigot scored 30 tries in 83 Super League appearances in his first spell with the Dragons and he says he is glad to be back.

He said: “I’m really happy to be able to do again what I love and to be back at my club.

“I would like to thank Bernard (Guasch, Dragons chairman) and everybody at the club, even the fans, for their support.

“I’m now looking forward to being back at the Stade Gilbert Brutus to start the training with my team-mates.”

Dragons head coach Steve McNamara is pleased to welcome the France international back to the club.

He said: “I’m delighted that Tony is available to continue his career.

“He will be a great addition to our current squad and adds real quality and strike to our backline.”
