Simon commits to Catalans

Catalans Dragons prop Mickael Simon has signed a new two-year contract which will keep him at the Gilbert Brutus Stadium until the end of the 2020 season.

The 31-year-old France international is in his second spell with the Perpignan club for whom he made his 100th Betfred Super League appearance in last Saturday’s 44-16 win over Castleford Tigers.

“I’m really happy to sign a new contract and to stay here for the next two seasons,” said Simon, who rejoined the Dragons from a two-year spell at Wakefield Trinity 18 months ago.

“My family and I really love the club and I’m grateful to the board and the staff for having faith in me.”

Catalans chief executive Christophe Jouffret said: “Since returning from Wakefield, Mika has established himself as a key player of our pack, in particular thanks to his runs and his hard job in defence.

“Quiet, serious and faithful, he brings to the group his experience and commitment to our club.”
