Brayden Wiliame leaves the club
Catalans Dragons can confirm that Brayden Wiliame is moving back to Australia with immediate effect to join a NRL club.
The Fiji International arrived at the club in 2017 and made 72 appearances for the Dragons, scoring 30 tries.
He also appeared in the 2018 Challenge Cup Final at Wembley and scored a try.
Brayden Wiliame : “First of all, I want to thank Bernard and the coaching staff for giving me the opportunity to come to the Dragons back in 2017. It’s been an experience I’ll cherish forever. Thank you to the members and fans for the endless support the past three years. And lastly to the players and families, thank you for making my family and I feel welcome from the start!
I wish you all nothing but the best. Allez les Dracs! “
Steve McNamara :”Whilst we are very disappointed that Brayden will leave our club immediately, he does so with our full support. We completely understand his reasons for asking for the release and the opportunity which he has in front of him for both himself and his family. Brayden will be a big loss to our team, his commitment and development as a player at Catalans has been a pleasure to see and he will always be remembered as a player who gave his all in every game. We wish him and his family well for the future.
Our search for a replacement will begin and we will look domestically in France, England and the Southern Hemisphere for the right player.”
