Benjamin Garcia has been appointed Catalans Dragons captain for the 2021 season.
The loose-forward has taken over from Rémi Casty, who was captain for eight seasons and becomes the eighth captain in the club’s history.
Garcia said, “I’m really proud to be the new captain. I grew up as a Dragons fan and always dreamt to be the captain of this club one day. I’m ready to take on this role and lead by example, I really want to do well and win trophies with the club. We’re entering a new cycle, with a lot of young players coming through and I really want to be a part of that and lead this team.”
Head coach Steve McNamara was excited to make the announcement. “Benjamin was the clear and obvious choice to be the new captain of Catalans for 2021. His drive and ambition combined with his high level and consistency of performance made this an easy choice. He has total respect from everyone within our playing group and organisation and will always put the team first.”
