Catalans Dragons have signed NRL centre Adam Keighran from the 2023 Super League season.
Keighran arrives for the Sydney Roosters centre and has signed a one-year deal. The 25-year-old played 17 times for the Roosters, having spent two seasons with the club after signing from New Zealand Warriors.
On signing, Keighran said: “I’m really grateful for the opportunity given to me by Catalans. I’ve always wanted to experience Super League throughout my career and my family and I are really excited to experience it in France.
“Catalans is a very competitive team in this competition and I am really looking forward to being a part of it. I feel like this opportunity will allow me to take my game to the next level and that is something I’m really looking forward to.”
Highly recommended by former Catalans and current Roosters coach Trent Robinson, goal-kicker Keighran was born in and developed in the Canterbury Bulldogs’ system before joining the Penrith Panthers, where his breakout season in New South Wales Cup earned him his first NRL deal with the Warriors.
Keighran made his NRL in 2019 season and then joined the Roosters. He scored 8 tries and 120 points in 26 NRL appearances.
With limited opportunities in the Roosters impressive backline in 2022, he played in the NSW Cup and ended the season with an impressive eight tries, nine try assists and 160 points in 17 games.
Catalans Dragons head coach Steve McNamara added: “Adam is a player whose career is taking off and exactly what we need. Tough, uncompromising and talented, he is a great signing.”
