Williame thanks Potter for Catalans chance

Brayden Williame has revealed that former St Helens, Catalans and Bradford Bulls coach Mick Potter helped him get the chance to shine in the South of France.

The Fijian international outside back is looking to develop while with Catalans, and feels he can bring a lot to the team.

“Mick Potter – he’s the Fijian national coach,” he told Dragons TV.

“He had a word to me about what’s going on at Catalans at the moment, and what they’re looking to improve in.

“It’s something that I can help with, and bring something from Australia.

“It was him and Justin Horo – I played with him at Manly. He’s said nothing but good things about the team, the football and the lifestyle here.”

The chance to play regular first-team rugby was also one that Williame felt was too good to miss.

“I liked it at Manly, but I got the chance to come over here and play some first grade with Catalans,” he said.

“That’s something I couldn’t turn down.

“It’s an opportunity I probably won’t take up later in my career, so it’s an opportunity for my partner and daughter to see the world a bit as well.

“So that’s why I’ve come over.

“I’ve not come over here for a holiday, I’m here to play footy and win footy games.”
