Catalans Dragons prop Lambert Belmas has signed a one-year contract to stay at the club for the 2021 season.
Belmas, 23, started playing Rugby League in Carcassonne and joined the club academy in 2015. He started playing with the U19 and then with the club reserve team in the French competition. He made his Super League debut in 2017, and has played 16 games for the Dragons.
Belmas said: “I’m really happy to have signed a new contract for the club. After a tough season, it has been difficult for me to play some games.
“But a new season will start and I can’t wait to be back with my team mates, to work hard and to make my place in the squad.
Head Coach Steve McNamara added: “Lambert has worked extremely hard over the last period and has suffered the same frustration as many other players of not playing much in 2020.
“Next year will be a very important year for him as he tries to establish himself in the game day team on a weekly basis.”
