Gadwin Springer reneges on previous deal to sign for Super League side

Gadwin Springer has signed for Toulouse Olympique, just a month after it was announced he would be joining Elite One Championship side Villeneuve.

Springer had been confirmed as a Villeneuve player in October but has now chosen to come back to Super League.

The French-Guianan prop actually came through the Toulouse academy before joining the Catalans Dragons where he made his debut in the Super League in 2014.

Confined to the Catalans reserve team, he then went to Castleford. The French forward played nearly 60 games in three seasons with the Tigers, before taking ending up on the periphery at the Jungle, helping the Toronto Wolfpack climb to Super League at the end of the 2019 season.

After a shortened year in 2020, he returned to the Championship competition this year with Halifax, then Featherstone who recruited him during the summer.

Villeneuve agreed to the release to allow Springer to join.

Springer said: “I am very happy to join the TO. After talking to Sylvain, I am excited to take part in the Super League adventure with Toulouse. I’m happy to be back in this competition, I’m joining a group that has had a great season and I can’t wait to start training.”

Bernard Sarrazain, the President of Toulouse, said: “Gadwin has all the qualities and the necessary experience to help us achieve the objectives set. I am convinced that under the leadership of Sylvain and his staff, he can go even further.”
