Brayden Wiliame leave Catalans

Recommended Posts

He was deeply underwhelming for the first season in France, but playing for Fiji in the 2017 RWC seemed to flick a switch and he came back to club Rugby a far better asset to the Cats.

That’s bad news. Cats in big trouble, mark my word. Relegation fight beckons.

I don't think they'll go down, but I do think that Steve McBanana will be the first coaching sacking of the season.

Imo one of the main reasons was in 2017 he had a mixture of ‘wingers’ outside him in DuPont, Thornley.  Neither prove a threat in attack, so sides gave him a hard time.  A bit of that, a bit of his young age and an injury.

2018 was better and injury free ish.  He scored even less but a CC medal probably made up for that!

2019 was his best year for scoring.  He really looked the part and will be missed at Catalans.  Good Centre.

I saw it mentioned on another thread about Brayden Wiliame leaving Catalans, and the BBC have confirmed it. Quite a loss in my opinion. Seem to let him go at rather short notice.

I cant see anywhere which NRL club hes going to join.

Anyone know what's going on with Tony Gigot? At one point he was meant to be the one going to St George!

I think he’s had his shot at the NRL.  

IMO he got slotted in as a FB with Cats but just hasnt worked for whatever reasons.  Sam Tomkins on the scene seems to clash with Gigot.

I still maintain he’s an out and out centre.

Hopefully Catalans now re-sign Gigot after unexpectedly losing Wiliame 

I’d be amazed if he did.  From the outside it looked as if Guasch binned him the on principal of Gigot wanting a better deal but neglecting to remember that Cats stood by him with the drugs altercation.

Daft really.  Short career, which could’ve been shorter if they’d just dumped him after his antics.

For me, he was always a good Centre and caused teams problems.  At 6 he was average and FB similar.
