Huge Super League transfer CONFIRMED

Last week as Leeds Rhinos let go of Blake Austin to join Castleford Tigers and Wigan Warriors signed Tyler Dupree from Salford Red Devils, ig was all about this season in terms of recruitment.

But today a huge transfer for next year has been confirmed.

Many clubs are linked with halfbacks at the moment such is the important of the role and the merry go round at the moment.

This will see Catalans Dragons lose Mitchell Pearce and Tyrone May.

They have now secured a replacement in French international Theo Fages.

The Giants are expected to sign NRL star Adam Clune as his replacement.

Fages will bring an end to his two-year stay at the Giants, as he returns home to France to join Steve McNamara’s Dragons in 2024.

Joining the club in 2022 from St Helens, Theo played a role in guiding the Giants to a top 3 finish in the regular season.

Theo has made 21 appearances in Super League so far for the Giants, and is on track in his return from injury, still fully committed to finishing the season on a high.

Ian Watson, Huddersfield Giants Head Coach wished Theo well as he returns home to France at the end of 2023.

“I would like to start by thanking Theo for the last two years he is a player and person who I hold in the highest regard.

“I would have loved Theo to have continued on the journey we discussed when signing him but unfortunately there has been a lot of things for Theo and his family to have dealt with over the last 2 years.

“Theo has been a model professional and person and we all support him in the decision he has now made and wish him all the very best in his new venture with Catalans.”

Théo Fages said: “I’m very happy and excited to sign for Catalans Dragons! I can’t wait to wear the club’s jersey. It will be an honor to wear the shirt in front of my family, friends, and fans. I’m proud to have the opportunity to join this great squad. I will do my best to bring back home many trophies for the club”.

Born in Catalonia, he started rugby league at the academy of Pia before he moved to Salford at the age of 16 to join the Red Devils’ academy. He quickly became a regular starter in Super League and made his professional debut in 2013 at 18 years-old. After 3 full seasons with Salford, the French playmaker signed for St Helens, where he won 3 times the Super League and the Challenge Cup.
