Micky McIlorum signs contract extension


Catalans Dragons hooker Micky McIlorum has today signed a one-year contract with the club.

The former Ireland and England international, 33, has put pen to paper on a contract extension that will secure his future at the Gilbert Brutus Stadium until the end of the 2022 season.

McIlorum has played his entire professional career at Wigan with whom he won the 2010, 2013 and 2016 Super League titles and the Challenge Cup on two occasions in 2011 and 2013 before signing for the Dragons. Arrived at Brutus in 2018, he was one of the key players of Steve McNamara’ squad in the Challenge Cup success at Wembley. His Player of the Year award at the end of the 2018 season rewarded his great performances. The Irish hooker made 71 appearances for the Dragons and scored 7 tries since he joined the club.

I am very happy and proud to be staying with the Dragons next year and to be a part of what Bernard and the coaching staff have built over the past 4 years since I arrived. Thanks to Bernard and Steve for showing their trust and confidence in me and we will all be trying to finish this season on a high. Thank you to the fans for their continued support and the people of this region who have welcomed me and my family like one of their own since we arrived. Allez les Dragons !

Since Micky’s arrival at the Dragons he has helped set the standard in how to compete on everything.  He continues to be one of the most fierce competitors in the competition and we are delighted he will continue with us for another season.
