Tony Gigot could make Toronto debut this weekend

Tony Gigot has linked up with Toronto Wolfpack after signing with the club on a one-month trial.

The French international is a free agent after leaving Catalans at the end of the season, but has now joined the Wolfpack on an initial short-term deal.

Despite their well-publicised salary cap issues, Toronto have confirmed they have the cap space to make the signing and Gigot will join them with immediate effect.

Gigot, a Lance Todd Trophy winner in 2018, is the only Frenchman to ever be named man of the match in a Challenge Cup Final, doing so as the Dragons defeated Warrington.

He was unable to come to terms on a new contract with Catalans at the end of last season and has spent time with hometown club Avignon, as well as a spell in Italy trialling in rugby union.

But he is now back in Super League with the winless Wolfpack and could make his debut for the club when they face Warrington on Friday.

“Tony has proven his talent across a long and successful career and has shown he has what it takes to play at an elite level,” said head coach Brian McDermott.

“We are extremely excited to see what he can do in his return to Super League. This will be a four-week trial period and Tony has shown great commitment in staking his claim with the Wolfpack and I look forward to working with him again.”
