Dragons sign Broughton

Catalans Dragons have signed winger Jodie Broughton on a two-year contract from the start of the 2016 season.

A product of the Leeds Rhinos Academy, Broughton made his Super League debut whilst on loan at Hull FC in 2008. He joined Salford in 2010, scoring 60 tries in 99 games during his time at the club, before joining Huddersfield Giants in 2014.

“I am really looking forward to joining the Catalans Dragons,” said Broughton.

“It is a massive opportunity for me at this stage of my career and just the challenge I was looking for.”

Catalans Dragons Head coach Laurent Frayssinous added: “It is very pleasing to have reached agreement with Jodie to bring him to the Dragons for the next two seasons.

“He is one of the fastest players in the competition and has the qualities we were looking for. He is a great finisher and has valuable experience in the competition.”
