Matthieu Laguerre signs contract extension


Matthieu Laguerre has signed a two-year contract with the club.

The France International centre has put pen to paper on a contract extension that will secure his future at the Gilbert Brutus Stadium until the end of the 2024 season.

He started playing rugby league in Marseille and joined the club Academy in 2017. He then progressed to the club reserve team and made his Super League debut last year. Named man of the match for his first professionnal game, he was rewarded for his great first season by the Award of Club’s Rookie of the Year and a first selection with France against England.

He scored 12 tries in 18 Dragons appearances.

Matthieu Laguerre
I am very happy to sign a new contract with the Dragons. I feel really good in this team and in this club and, to be honest, staying here was a natural choice. I have the trust of the coach and the club, I hope I can repay that by continuing to give my best every time I wear the Dragons’ jersey. I am lucky to be in a top-tier club and I know that I have to continue to work hard to improve.

Steve McNamara, Catalans Dragons Headcoach
We are delighted that Matthieu has agreed a new deal with the Dragons. He has worked extremely hard on all aspects of his game and this has shown in his performances for us. He will be an integral part of our team in the years to come and we look forward to seeing him progress further.
