Super League forward makes immediate loan move for the rest of the season

Wigan prop forward/second row Ramon Silva has joined Championship side Toulouse Olympique on loan until the end of the 2023 season.

The 21 year-old had been with London Broncos to enable him to gain some valuable game time, and previously had spells with Widnes Vikings and North Wales Crusaders.

In 2022, Silva was a regular in the Wigan Reserves side that lifted the Reserves Grand Final Trophy.

Transition Coach, John Duffy said: “This is a further opportunity for Ramon to continue his development playing week in, week out in a full time environment as well as the new culture that comes with playing in France.

“A huge thank you to Mick Eccles at London for all the hard work he has put in helping Ramon with the past few months. We look forward to observing Ramon further over the remainder of the 2023 season.”

“We would like to thank the management of Wigan for providing us with a player like Ramon. This shows once again the good relationship we have with the Warriors. This young pillar in full apprenticeship arrives with a view to strengthening to compensate for absences due to current injuries. I can’t wait to see Ramon bring all his power to our forward pack,” Toulouse said on the matter.
