Catalans Dragons Statement - Israel Folau


Catalans Dragons can confirm Israel Folau will be released from the remainder of his contract with immediate effect.

Arrived at the club in 2020, he signed a 1-year contract extension for 2021 but announced to the club early this year his decision to stay in Australia for a personal family situation.

Bernard Guasch, Catalans Dragons chairman: “Israel has been great with us in 2020 both on and off the field and we wanted to facilitate the negotiations to reach an agreement. He told us his desire to play alongside his two brothers and we didn't want to prevent him. We wish him all the best in the next chapter of his career."
