Catalans Dragons have confirmed that Vincent Duport will not play again this season.
The utility back has suffered a ruptured tendon in his shoulder, and will undergo surgery at a future date, yet to be decided.
“The news is a hugely disappointing blow for the player and the whole team,” said Dragons coach Laurent Frayssinous.
“Vincent already came back from big injuries in the past and I’m sure he will bounce back stronger.
“He is a key member in the team, who have to support him.”
