Catalans winger signs new deal

Catalans today announced that Fouad Yaha has signed a two year contract extension to prolong his already impressive stint with the club. The French international will now remain at Catalans until the end of the 2022 season.

The winger made his debut back in 2016 but did have a spell away from the Dragons as he enjoyed a stint playing rugby union for Agen.

2021 represents his third season back with Catalans and he’ll be looking forward to the season opener at Headingley against Hull KR. The Dragons are looking to build on last season’s fourth place finish and semi-final appearance. Many expect them to do so with the likes James Maloney now more settled in France.

Yaha was very pleased with the move saying, “I feel good in this club, I’m improving every year working with the staff and experienced players. We have a great squad with world class players and young talents coming through.”

The winger has scored 61 tries in 100 appearances for Catalans. Now 24, he could be set to hit his peak years and add to that tally. No doubt he’ll have something to prove in 2021 after being outscored by wing partner Tom Davies last season. With the World Cup also on the horizon, he’ll be looking to impress and add to his handful of caps for France.
