Catalan Dragons coach signs new deal

Catalans Dragons head coach Laurent Frayssinous has signed a new two year contract with the club. The former Dragons player and France international joined the coaching staff after hanging up his boots in 2007, but will now remain head coach after guiding Catalan to what looks like a top eight finish in Super League this season.

Frayssinous said : “I’m delighted to have extended my stay with the club and honored to have the support and the confidence of the board.”

“I’m really looking forward to growing and developing the club who is going in the right direction.”

“We have some very exciting prospects in the squad and the launch of our Academy team is an excellent opportunity for our junior products who are coming through and I’m excited to work with them in the next two seasons.”

Chairman Bernard Guasch added : “I’m really happy to keep Laurent at the club for the next two seasons. He always had our support during the last two seasons and, with the experience he gained, I’m sure he will continue to build and develop the team.”
