Catalans Dragons man could be set for surprise future amid Championship interest

There’s set to be plenty of change over at Catalans this off-season.

The Dragons have let go of a number of players including plenty of French youngsters as they look to sign some outside backs and namely a centre according to French publication L’Independent.

But what about those who have left the club behind, well oddly plenty of them are shining for the French national side with departing Benjamin Jullien scoring twice against Greece.

Meanwhile, Mathieu Cozza is also part of the squad and headed to Featherstone in 2023.

One man whose future is still unclear is Corentin Le Cam but it transpires that he could yet follow Cozza to the Championship next year.

Another big and powerful forward, he was named in St Helens assistant coach Laurent Frayssinous’ squad for France’s clash with England at Bolton on Saturday evening.

But ahead of this clash with some of Super League’s and the NRL’s finest players, Le Cam has opened up about what the future could hold for him confirming that there has been plenty of interest from Championship clubs but that he faces a decision between joining the Championship in 2023 and a surprising alternative.

An unnamed rugby union side in France has expressed interest in the incredibly tall forward no doubt seeing the potential he would have in a line out.

Though the money offered initially wouldn’t be massive, there is a chance that should Le Cam shine there he could soon find himself on a bumper contract such is the money available in French rugby union at this moment in time.

This has left Le Cam “hesitant” on a move to the Championship as he’s left to choose between rugby league and rugby union.

He said: “Some Championship teams are interested but I am still hesitating because a rugby union team in France has shown some interest too.”

Expect a decision from him after the World Cup with the forward no doubt focused on England this weekend.
